he will have the rank of major, on the first of June. There, 
Bartlett expects to continue teaching physics as he has here at

Professor Bartlett Will Leave Bowdoin To Teach At West Point 

A graduate from Bowdoin in 
1917, Bartlett then attended the 
Military Academy from which he 
received a Bachelor of Science de- 
gree in 1919. Following three 
years of service with the En- 
gineers, he worked in the Office 
of the Chief Engineer for a year. 
In 1921, Bartlett received a de- 
gree in Civil Engineering from the 
Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology, and in 1927, he received a 
Master of Arts degree in Physics 
At Columbia. During the period 
from 1922 until 1927, when he 
came to Bowdoin as an assistant 
professor, Bartlett was a physicist 
in the Bell Telephone Labora- 
tories. Two years before receiv- 
ing a Ph.D. from • Columbia in 
1933, he became a professor of 
physics here at Bowdoin. Bart- 
lett also studied at Munich in 1934 
and 1933. 

While at Bowdoin as an under- 
graduate, Bartlett *as a varsity 
football player as well as an ac- 
tive participant in class sports. 
At Bowdoin, Professor Bartlett 
was a member of Delta Kappa Ep* 
silon, and in his senior year he 
was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. 

During this past winter, Bart- 
lett has been carrying one of the 
heaviest schedules: three sections 
in Physics 1, 2, two advanced 
courses in physics, and the ground 
school of the pilot training course. 
He has been the coordinator of the 
CAA pilot training course ever 
since its introduction here. 

When Bartlett leaves in. the 
spring, Brunswick will lose one of 
its more active defense workers. 
He is the Chairman of the Bruns- 
wick Relief Committee. It is ex- 
pected that the College will give 
Professor Bartlett a leave of ab- 

Williams Probable Pitcher 
In First Series Encounter 

By Hal Curtis 

Next Saturday aftemoorj at Waterville, the Bowdoin 
pastimers will begin their defease of the State Baseball Crown 
when they meet Colby for the first game of the year. 

Although the team was hard hit 
by the recent warnings in the loss 
of Brad Hunter, a veteran pitcher,' 
Coach Linn Wells will field an ex- 
perienced nine. Either Ben Pierce 
or Sid Chason will be in the third 
base position which was left open 
by the graduation of Hank Bon- 
zagni. The other open place, sec- 
ond base, has been taken over by 
Dick Johnstone. Johnny Williams

D stands for Delta, U for Upsilon, just to be trite and to 

quiet any rumors that D stands for D — mned and U for Un- 
fortunates. Delta Upsilon has been around Bowdoin for quite 
a considerable number of years now, having been established 
in 1857. If anyone is interested in statistics, that makes it the 
sixth oldest fraternity on campus; also the sixth newest. 

The D,U's don't have any new 
house or old goats to talk about, 
but they have enough interesting 
personages in their clan to pro- 
vide material for enough inches to 
keep the editor happy. In the 
freshman delegation, for example, 
there is a character known as 
Steveson who, when not writing 
short stores or articles for the 
Orient, is proprietor of Hyde Hall's 
Make Believe Ball Room, where 
at any time of the night or day 
a small group of swing addicts 
may be found listening to records 
of various kinds of music and 
doubtful music. To become a 
member of this group, one must 
be able to cut a tin can in half 
with Lou Villeneube's machete. 
Lou, also a DU freshman, is a 

master with the weapon and is 
currently being paid by Hirohito 
not to invade Bataan. 

Coming back from the Easter 
vacation, we happened to be sit- 
ting on the Boston and Maine 
statecoach — Boston to Brunswick 
in twelve hours or bust — near a 
group of DU's. Two of them were 
stationed in a seat directly be- 
hind two Colby girls and were 
diligently trying to impress their 
charms upon the maidens from up- 
country. One fellow was doing all 
right, considering the rather tough 
resistence, but the other, much to 
everyone's apparent amazement, 
seemed to be bogging down. 
Someone hinted that this was be-

Richard Gardner 
Wins Fellowship 

Dean Nixon announced today 
that Richard F. Gardner of Au- 
burn, one bf "the highest ranking 
seniors at Bowdoin, has been 
awarded the Amherst Memorial 
Fellowship for graduate study at 
Harvard. He is the third Bowdoin 
man to receive the fellowship since 
Williams, Wesleyan, and Bowdoin 
became eligible for this honor in, 

■Gardner, a graduate of Edward 
UMJg^High Scjtwl^Auburn, is the 
son of the Superintendent of 
Schools George R. Gardner of that 
city. He came to Bowdoin on a 
State of Maine scholarship for 
which he competed with scores of 
high school students throughout 
the State. At Bowdoin he was 
elected to Phi Beta Kappa as a jun- 
ior. He is a member of the Beta 
Theta Pi Fraternity.; 

Previous Bowdoin winners of the 
Amherst Memorial Fellowship 
were: George A. Dunbar '39, of 
Watertown, Mass., and Luther D. 
Scales '40, Auburn. 

The Amherst Memorial Fund of 
$100,000 was set up in 1920 through 
an anonymous gift and was made 
available to Amherst men planning 
to do graduate work. In 1938 Am- 
herst College made provisions for 
men from Wesleyan, Williams, and 
Bowdoin to become eligible for the 
fellowship on a competitive basis. 

a starting pitcher. 

Both Pierce and Chason can hit 

and throw well so it is a toss-up 

to see who will start. Johnstone, 

jan outstanding man up from last 

I year's Jayvees, shines defensively. 

The rest of the team is made 

up of veterans from last season's 

winning team. Jimmy Dolan will 

be at short and Will Small at first 
I to fill .out a fast infield. Last 
'year's outfield of Bob Bell, Jim 
.Dyer, and Brad Briggs, is intact. 

They were the class of the state Dean Paul Nlxon absented him- 

series in 1941 and they should be ^ lf trom the college last week 

this season. They all hit over 
three twenty last year and they 
are all good defensively. The team 
will be captained by Ed Coombs, 
last year's All-Maine catcher. 
• The loss of Hunter leaves the 
Polar Bears with a weakness in 
the pitching department. Williams, 
the most experienced, will be aid- 
ed by two sophomores, Bill Mudge 
and Johnny Woodcock. Wood-

Glee Club's Town Hall 
Debut Praised By James 

By Philip Hoffman 

From all sides came proof of the success of the Bowdoin 
Glee Club's New York Town Hall concert given March 30. 
Over 1000 were in the audience including most of the New 
York alumni and many subfreshmen. The manager of the 
Town Hall stated that it was the largest college glee club debut 
audience on record. 

Philip James, composer of "Gen- 
eral William Booth Enters into 
Heaven," which was the highlight 
of the program, was present and 
wrote Professor Frederic Tiliotson 
giving his opinion of the Glee 
Club's performance. The text of the 
letter follows: "In the always un- 
satisfactory meeting of the green 
room after a concert, I fear the 
other evening after your Town Hall 
Concert that 1 did not adequately 
express to you my gratitude and 
enthusiasm for your Bowdoin Col- 
lege Glee Club's rendition of my

"First of all, the interpretation 
was beyond that of the many per- 
formances by other clubs which I 
have heard to date. The club rose 
gallantly to the occasion, and in 
consequence I witnessed a per- 
formance that was quite thrilling 
and most impressive. Please give 
my thanks to the boys for doing so 
well and added thanks to the sup- 
porting instrumentalists especially 
the pianists. 

"Again with many thanks and 

appreciation, I am 

Cordially yours,

Chairman dept. of Music, 
New York University." 

Expressing his gratification for 
having had the privilege of leading 
the club to the climatic concert in 
his graduation year, John E. Wil- 
liams, Jr. '42, president of the Glee 
Club said: "Every one who has 
written or spoken to me about the 
concert, among whom were many 
who can be considered authorities, 
has said that it was the best glee 
club performance they had ever 

"Perhaps the most praise should 
go to Professor Tiliotson for his 
foresight and planning in prepar- 
ing us for the occasion. 

"I should like to thank the boys 
for their wholehearted support and 
the alumni for backing us so

Plans for Masque and Gown ac- 
tivities for the summer session will 
be outlined at a smoker tonight in 
the Moulton Union Lounge at 7.30 
p.m. All men interested in doing 
dramatic work during the summer 
here should attend this smoker, 
whether a member of the Masque 
and Gown or not. 

The meeting will be very short, 
and should end by eight o'clock. 
Any man who is unable to attend 
this meeting, but is interested in it, 
should get in touch with Professor 
Quinby or a member of the exec- 
utive committee immediately, as 
the summer program depends 
much upon the number of students 
who are willing to devote the nec- 
essary time to the work, according 
to Professor Quinby. 

Several full-length student writ- 
ten plays have been submitted for 
trial. Charles Mergendahl '41, 
whose play, "Me and Harry," was 
recenUy produced in New York 
City, is interested in having a new 
play tried out here during the sum- 
mer if it can be given adequate

"The Milky Way" Will Be 
Presented Arena Style 

"The Milky Way" will be pre- 
sented arena style in the cage at 
5 p. m. on Friday, April 24, for 
Ivy Houseparties. The change in 
the hour has been necessary in 
order to allow the Ivy Day guests 
to see the Ivy exercises at 1.30 
and the baseball game at 2.30, be- 
fore the play. 

Tickets will be, as usual, on sale 
at the door. Reserved seat tickets, 
which will entitle the holder to a 
seat close to the acting arena, will 
cost seventy-five cents. Other 
tickets will be at fifty cents for 
non-reserved seats, which will not 
be quite as close to the acting 
area as the reserved seats. Stu- 
dents will be admitted to the non- 
reserved seats upon presentation 
of their Blanket Tax ticket, or to

Professor Snow is a Maine man. 
Born on Penobscot Bay, he prac- 
tically grew up in a boat, and 
,even today, his best known poems

In the recent Student Council 
elections, James Dolan '43 was 
chosen President of the body for 
the coming year. He is a mem- 
ber of the Psi Upsilon Fraternity, 
and is a letter man in football, 
hockey, and baseball. George 
Hutchings '43, a member of the 
Delta Upsilon Fraternity, and also 
a member of the varsity football 
and hockey teams, was elected 
Vice-President. Other members 
from the class of 1943 who were 
elected are: George Alt man, Wil- 
liam Beckler, W. Bradford Briggs, 
Robert Edwards, Robert Morse, 

whilom mmm*m, -Jot

Johnstone and William Elliot were 
elected from the class of 1944. 

The newly-elected body will 
have a meeting some time this 
week, according to James Dolan, 
the new President. Although this 
Council will have no official ca- 
pacity until next semester, they 
are holding this meeting to dis- 
cuss plans for Freshman Rules for 
the coming year. The new Coun- 
cil intends also to form plans for 
the regulating of Freshman haz- 

Following his graduation from Il- 
linois University in 1925, Les Hite 
embarked on a theatre tour in and 
around Los Angeles. It was on this 
tour that Hite met Frank Sebas- 
tion, owner of the famous Cotton 
Club in Hollywood, and shortly af- 
ter, Sebastion offered Hite a con- 
tract to appear with Louis Arm- 
strong and his orchestra, then 
playing at the Cotton Club. Hite 
worked with Armstrong for 48 
consecutive weeks, and when Louis 
left for New York, Les took over 
the band. It was with Hite's band 
that Armstrong made some of his 
greatest recordings: "Memories of 
You," "Body and Soul," "Confes- 
sin," and "Shine." 

For the past 18 weeks Les Hite 
has been broadcasting nightly from 
over WOR and combined Mutual 
networks from the exclusive Chat- 
terbox at Mountainside, New Jer- 
sey. During his fifteen years in 
Hollywood, Hite has been featured 
in more than 65 motion pictures, 
some of the best known of which 
are "Cavalcade," 1933 Academy 
Award Picture, "Alexander's Rag- 
time Band," "A Day at the Races," 
for which he recorded the entire 

Bowdoin Team Will Play 

Mail Bridge Tourney 

Rabbi Harburg Speaks At 
Sunday Chapel Service 

Bowdoin will be represented by a 
team of eight in the nation-wide 
Intercollegiate Bridge Tournament 
this year .which is being conducted 
entirely by mail between April 20 
and 24, 1942. National sponsor for 
the tournament is the Intercollegi- 
ate Bridge Tournament Committee 
of New York, while the local "game 
captain" in charge of play will be 
Donovan Lancaster, manager of 
the Union. 

First prize this year will be a 
check for $100 made out to the 
American Red Cross, which the 
winning team will have the honor 
of presenting to its local chapter. 
Small individual cups will also be 
awarded, however, as well as the 
permanent Intercollegiate Chal- 
lenge Cup, which will go to the 
winning pair. The challenge cup 
was wen by Harvard in 1941 and 
by Radcliffe in 1940. 

All colleges will play the same 
hands in the tournament, with 

score, and "Dark Rapture." This 
coming Saturday night Les is 
scheduled to play at flicker's in 
Portland. Among his current top- 
flight recordings for Bluebird are 
"The World is Waiting for the Sun- 
rise," "Board Meetin", T Bone 

Blues," and "It Must Have Been a 
Dream," the band's theme. 

Heralded by many as the most 
versatile musical and entertaining 
organization today, Hite's orches- 
tra features a large number of sen- 
sational stars: the Woodman 
Brothers, versatile blues singers; 
Frank Pasley and his electric gui- 
tar; Benny Booker, bass violinist 
extraordinary; Oscar Bradley, the 
world's fastest drummer; Bob 
Love, song stylist; Floyd Turnhrfm, 
brilliant saxophonist; Walter Wil- 
liams, hot trumpeter; and Britt 
Woodman, stellar trombonist. 

The personality of the band is 
one of its outstanding features, 
according to a recent review in 
"Swing Magazine." "Stealthily his 
music creeps up about you. Your 
semi-conscious critical mind at 
first aware of the rhythm, of the 
arrangement, of the melody. Half- 
heartedly you try to ward it off. 
You struggle slightly. But then 
helplessly you shrug back your 
shoulders, chuckle a bit to yourself 
and give up. Completely drugged 
you lean back anH listen ^nrlrlmAr 
you tap your feet. Yes sir, it sure is 
SOLID. Your body goes out to 
meet the beat — you clap your 
hands and they become a fifth 
member of the rhythm section. 
Then Les smiles and that does it 
—You're a gonner— and for the 
rest of the night you're the extra 
man in that band."

Sills Discusses 
Summer Sessions 

On April 2 President Kenneth C. 
M. Sills spoke over WGAN in a 
program of the "Bowdoin On The 
Air" series. His talk was not only 
purely of educational value, but 
also gave a great deal of interest- 
ing information about the new 
Bowdoin summer session. 

The President's talk was inform- 
al and was really a heart-to-heart 
discussion with potential Bowdoin 
undergraduates and their families. 
He stated that because of the war 
certain college conditions must 
change, but that these changes 
which shorten the total time spent 
in college have several advantages 
to compensate for the extra work. 

He said, "The Government of the 
United States has both officially 
and informally expressed its desire 

that, unlike the Germans or the j Comprising the Bowdoin team in 1 that our college should continue to

the American Experience will be 
opened to the Bowdoin student 
body at a concert of American Jazz 
Music to be held in the Moulton 
Union, Wednesday evening, from 
8.15 to 9.15. 

The program, which has been ar-

Early "45, and "Doc" Johnson *45, 
is not intended to cover the entire I others whom,

it, nor does the program propose to 
present the twelve best sides of 
jazz. What is intended is to play a 
dozen or so records by some men 
who illustrate the true spirit of 
American jazz. Undoubtedly, some 
of the sides will sound old and a 
bit rough in spots, but the listener 
is guaranteed plenty of that spon- 
taneity, originality, artistry, and 
feeling which is jazz.

experts will attempt to answer all 
queries and to spin platters by 
groups and soloists in which the 
students are most interested. In 
this way, the great mass of the stu- 
dent body will be enabled to hear 
the beautiful solo improvisations of 
such men as Beiderbecke, Tesche- 
macher, Joe Oliver, Teagarden, 
Hines, Hodges, Bigard, Tizol, and 
otherwise, they 

If this concert is a success, the 
Bowdoin Jazz Group intends to 
continue them so that eventually 
they can present examples of all 
types and schools of American 
Jazz, from the slow relaxed blues 
of New Orleans to the driving en- 
sembles of Chicago jazz, including 
all the variations on both schools 
of jazz. It is hoped also to obtain 
the College's sanction in the near 
future to bring small jazz groups 

give our students as'much of a col- 
lege education as is feasible before 
the young men are called into na- 
tional service, and the colleges are 
revising their courses so that many 
may qualify for the degree about 
the time that they become twenty 
years of age." 

President Sills went on to discuss 
the governmental requests and also 
to explain in full the mechanics of 
the entire .shortened course, end- 
ing with tfce statement that he 
himself recommended that "those 
parents who are thinking of help- 
ing their children to get a college 
education think most seriously of 
enrolling them for summer ses- 
sions even at a sacrifice." 

There will be no Miller nor

More than forty per cent of the Bow- 
doin student body is failing scholastically, 
according to information revealed at the 
recent mid-semester review of classes. 
Over 80 students received major warn- 
ings significant of failure in two or more 
courses, and over 160 students were 
warned because of failure in one of their 
courses. More than 240 warnings were 
issued last week, casting a shadow over . 
the coming of spring. 

This is a new number record of warn- 
ings. Almost half of the college is "flunk- 
ing," to put it bluntly. The administra- 
tive officials of the faculty regard this 
DISGRACEFUL situation as one of the 
most threatening problems that Bowdoin 
has ever faced. 

The time has come to look the situa- 
tion straight in the eye and to face real- 

Bowdoirfs high scholastic standard is 
in very real danger of crumbling. Of 
necessity, that standard has had to be re- 
laxed somewhat for the duration. Like 
all colleges, Bowdoin has been very con- 
siderate in trying- 16 •m_ke : it easier for 
students to concentrate on their studies 
during these upsetting times. President 
Sills, in leading a wise policy, has realized 
that the tempo of the times has had its 
depressing effect on students everywhere. 
Allowances have been made for that 

But still the undergraduate grades con- 
tinue in their downward spiral. Why? • 
Part of the blame can be laid to the war- 
but is that the only reason? Is it? Can it 
be when forty per cent of the college is 
tottering on the brink of scholastic col- 

We feel that there is at least one other 
contributing cause and we feel now, af- 
ter watching more than a year of the pol- 
icy of relaxation that we should speak. 

There are too many undergraduates 
who are not putting enough work into 
their studying; there are too many who 
are loafing; too many intelligent young 
men who are becoming collegiate "dead- 
heads" and "scholastic liabilities"; too 
many who, like some leaders of industry 
and labor today are seeking to take ad- 
vantage of the war emergency, and are 
making use of the relaxed standards of 
the emergency to "soldier" their way 
through college; too many who have been 
deferred from the draft so that tfiey 
might study on "borrowed time," yet 
they are not applying themselves serious- 
ly, they are letting good Bowdoin men 
who have been called from school into 
the service, fight the battle for them. 

This is one cause for the scholastic 
"blackout." At least forty per cent or 
240 of the undergraduates may disagree 
with this editorial sentiment. They can- 
not agree; but they are not in a position 
to talk today. 

Our scholarship here has received a 
severe blow. Scholastically, Bowdoin is 
on its knees. If we do not face realities 
in this problem, Bowdoin will be flat on 
its back. 

n Could it be that the college officials 
must again place the undergraduates 
grades above sea level by showing that 
continual failure by students wit] mean 
dismissals from college — by showing this 

with action — With dismissals — not in 
every case, no, but in many cases where 
there is evidence of continual unwilling- 
ness of some students to apply them- 

The curriculum has been accelerated in 
keeping with the trend of the day, stu- 
dents are taking more courses but they 
are not increasing the work they do in 
proportion to the acceleration of the cur- 
riculum of the college. 

There are some students who have 
kept up their grades and even increased 
them. There are others who are trying 
hard. All these deserve credit and en- 
couragement. But there are too many 
who are not trying hard enough, there 
are too many who are taking it easy. 

This IS a contributing cause. Let us 
not be blind to the reality. 
7VT 1942 

Next week for- the first time in 25 
years the shadows of America at war 
will cloud a Bowdoin Ivy celebration. 
There will be many Bowdoin men, now 
in serivce, who ordinarily would be cele- 
brating Ivy here next week. To them, 
each and every one of them, we now pay 

Ivy houseparty expenses by fraternity 
houses this year should be kept at a min- 
imum. The college has advised against 
excessive expenditures for house bands. 
"Vic" dances are in order for the Satur- 
day night of Ivy week; any expenditure 
for a house band is highly out of place 
this year. 

Bowdoin must soon take its stand on 
the issue of freshman eligibility. Some 
time ago we stated that freshmen should 
not be made eligible for varsity athletic 
competition until they have first given 
evidence of their scholastic ability. 

Many New England colleges have re- 
cently decided to make freshmen eligible 
for varsity intercollegiate competition 
immediately upon entrance to college. 
This means that freshmen entering next 
fall could play varsity football. 

Included among the colleges which 
have taken this stand are Harvard, Wes- 
leyan, Dartmouth, Bates, Colby and 
others. The University of Maine has re- 
fused to alter the status quo. A few col- 
leges have not yet made their decisions. 
The Maine state series will find Colby 
and Bates playing freshman and Maine 
continuing as before. 

Bowdoin has held the sentiment 
which we expressed — that if necessary 
freshmen should be made eligible to play 
the second semester before being declared 
eligible immediately upon entry into col- 
lege. This latter course seems like a self- 
ish attempt to take advantage of the war 
situation. Bowdoin should now stick to 
its guns. Freshmen entering in June, 
showing their scholastic ability during 
the summer session, might well play 
football in September. But no freshmen 
should be allowed to enter college and 
play varsity athletics without any atten- 
tion being paid to his scholastic abilities 
or inabilities. 

We feel that Harvard and some other 
institutions declared freshmen eligible 
mainly to save money. Whether or not 
Bates and Colby did it for this reason or 
for some other reasons or whether or not 
they were short of men, we don't know. 
They don't make themselves clear on this 

But the whole idea of allowing fresh- 
men to enter any college and immediately 
proceed to play varsity athletics smells 
of subsidization. It might well be that an 
"open shipyard" policy under which 
tramp athletes and ringers would become 
more prevalent than they already are 
throughout the country. 

The shortage of men in colleges is not 
that acute. It looks as though Bates and 
Colby merely followed the parade of 
those who could not see that the wise 
thing to do would be first declare fresh- 
men eligible for second semester compe- 
tition or after a summer semester. 

Like other colleges who are now on the 
same shaky bandwagon, Bates and Colby 
will have to stand the scrutiny of public 
opinion as a result of their unwarranted 
actions which tend to spoil the state se- 
ries. And they don't stand up too well 
before our eyes.

To the Editor of the ORIENT: 

I am enclosing herewith clipping 
from the Exonian in regard to Dr. 
Paul Everett who graduated from 
Bowdoin sometime around 1930. It 
seemed to me that this well de- 
serves space in the Orient. 
Yours very truly, 
(Signed) LUTHER DANA. 
"We now wish to make a formal 
statement in behalf of the entire 
student body which will express 
the good wishes which attend the 
departure of one of Exeter's most 
beloved teachers, Dr. Paul Everett 
of the French Department, who 
will today be inducted into the 
United States Army. 

"Since he came here in 1935 Dr. 
Everett has been an understanding 
host to the respect and admiration 
of all Exonians who have been priv- 
ileged to come in contact with him. 
He is the best sort of teacher, not 
maintaining a rigid discipline in his 
classes, but inspiring an enthusias- 
tic ardor for learning which forms 
its own discipline. 

"It could be easy to be selfish 
about Dr. Everett's induction, to 
argue fhat brilliant, keen minds 
should be excused from military 
training. Dr. Everett's own feeling 
on this issue answers the question. 
This is an American army, symbol 
of the concerted, unanimous action 
of a democratic people. And it is 
gratifying to know that Ph.D.'s will 
serve gladly side by side with ditch

To the Editor of the Orient: 

I read with interest the article 
in your issue of March 25, 1942, en- 
titled "Orient Reported Much Im- 
pressed by Sound Effects from 
Deko House." I am not a Deke and 
what I say is not said in defense of 
that fraternity but for Bowdoin. 

I do not see any advantage to be 
gained by publishing such an 
article. To a Deke it certainly is 
not humorous and I hope it would 
not seem humorous to any large 
number of your readers. To charge 
a man with being a drunken 
wastrel, if true, should be a subject 
for pity, not laughter, and, if un- 
true, is wanton, malicious libel. 
The syrupy three paragraphs at 
the end of the article do not re- 
move the string from the balance 
but only indicate weakness in the 

It is to my mind unfortunate to 
have put in print matter which in 
unsympathetic hands might be used 
to indictae that a large and prom- 
inent section of Bowdoin under- 
graduates run a house with "Nec- 
essary equipment supplied" where 
the inmates spend their Sundays 
recovering from Saturday. 

When I was an undergraduate I 
was responsible for publishing in 
the Bugle somewhat similar stuff 
and I can assure you that I was 
not much older when 1 regretted it. 
Very truly yours,

You want to serve your country! 
Why not serve where your college 
training will do the most good? 

Under the Navy's newest plan, you can en* 
list now and continue in college. If you make 
a good record, you may qualify within two 
years to become a Naval Officer— on the 
sea or in the air. 

Who may qualify 

80,000 men per year will be accepted under 
this new plan. If you are. between the ages 
of 17 and 19 inclusive and can meet Navy 
physical standards, you can enlist now as an 
Apprentice Seaman in the Naval Reserve. 
You will be in the Navy. But until you have 
finished two calendar years, you will remain 
in college, taking regular college courses 
under your own professors. Your studies 
will emphasize mathematics, physics and 
physical training. 

After you have successfully completed 1^£ 
calendar years of work, you will be given a 
written examination prepared by the Navy. 
This examination is competitive. It is de- 
signed to select the best men for training as 
Naval Officers. 

How to become on Officer 
If you rank sufficiently high in the examina- 
tion and can meet the physical standards, 
you will have your choice of two courses 
— each leading to an officer's commission: 

1. You may volunteer for training as an 
Aviation Officer. In this case you will be per- 
mitted to finish at least the second calendar 
year of your college work, after which you 
will be ordered to active duty for training 
to become an officer-pilot. Approximately 
20,000 men a year will be accepted for 
Naval Aviation. 

2. Or you will be selected for training as a 
Deck or Engineering Officer. In this case you 
will be allowed to continue your college 
work until you have received your degree. 

After graduation you will be ordered to active 
duty for training to become a Deck or En- 
gineering Officer. Approximately 15,000 men 
a year will be accepted. 

If you do not qualify for special officer's 
training, you will be allowed to finish the 
second calendar year of college, after which 
you will be ordered to active duty at a Naval 
Training Station as Apprentice Seaman. 

Those who fail to pass their college work 
at any time may be ordered to active duty 
at once as Apprentice Seamen. 

Your pay starts with active duty. 

Here's a real opportunity. A chance to 
enlist in your country's service now without 
giving up your college training ... a chance 
to prove by that same training that you are 
qualified to be an officer in the Navy.

play the Zetes before final playoff 
standings will be determined. Fred 
Gregory, T. D. freshman, scored 
the highest three-string total thus 
far in the league with a ripe 371. 

According to previous plans, 
teams standing in second and 
third positions will vie for the 
finals with the team holding first 
place by playing off five strings, 
total pinfall determining the final- 
ist. This winner will bowl the 
same schedule with the number 
one team, and the winner will 
carry off the cup of one of best 
seasons the league has had.

Strong Running Entries 
May Give Bowdoin Victory 

By Dick Brit ton * * 

According to Track Coach Jack Magee, the men who 
leave here Friday morning for Burlington, Vermont, will stand 
an excellent chance to carry off top honors in the first regular 
track meet Bowdoin has ever held with Vermont. In the past, 
cross country meets have been held jointly with competition 
being fairly evenly matched, but this will be, the first fifteen 
1 event dual meet. 

Who will captain Big White 
track men against Vermont in 
the first dual meet this spring. 

Eleven Victories Give 
Betas Basketball Crown

that there will be a limited num- 
ber of jobs during the coming 
ho us e part i es. AH students inter- 
ested should get in touch wish 
him immediately at the Psi U. 

Conquering all of their oppo- 
nents, Beta Tlieta Pi*s stalwarts 
came out on top of the pile in the 
Inteffrat'emity Basketball fight, 
but they were closely trailed by 
the Dekes, Zetes, and Thorndikes 
who. were in a triple tie for sec- 
ond place. 

As the season closed, all talk 
of a playoff to unscramble the 
triple knot for second honors 
quietly died away. The Betas won 
all of their eleven contests while 
the trailing clubs just named lost 
! but one game apiece. 

The Betas' winning aggregation 
j included the following men: Bob 
Bell '42, William ("The Gipper") 
Simonton, Bob Morse, Nelson 
( 'Sandy" t Moran, Larry Stone, 
and Mill Patten of 43, George 
( "Saw" > Griggs, Jr. '44, and Frank 
Hauserman '45.

*M £ * - CAGE ' TO °" 

Because of this situation. Coach 
Magee declares that it is difficult 
to compare the two teams and 
predict a tentative outcome. It is 
obvious, however, that Vermont is 
strong in field events, as was 
shown at several of their more re- 
cent intercollegiate meets with 
other schools. To compensate for 
this, Bowdoin threatens to capture 
honors in the sprints, hurdles, high 
jump, and middle distance runs. 

Having started his spring squad 
earlier than he has ever done be- 
fore in his years of coaching at 
Bowdoin, Coach Magee has pro- 
duced a large, strong team with 
very pleasing possibilities. The 
time of several of our sprinters, 
taken at recent time trials during 
practice at Whittier field, is al- 
most phenomonal, according to 
Coach Magee. Other events prove 
equally promising with experienced 
distance runners, hurdlers, and 
jumpers. The only possible weak- 
ness in the otherwise well-bal- 
anced team may be in the shotput 
and and pole vaulting events. 
Coach Magee seems to be very 
satisfied with the group as a 
whole, a squad which has worked 
hard and long during these past 

In the sprints, Johnny Mathews 
and Johnny Dickinson may be es- 
pecially proud of their recent time 
trials, which should be a fairly 
good indication of what to expect 
when they run at Vermont. John 
Dickinson, Charley Crosby, Bob 
Newhouse, and Joe Carey are ex- 
pected to show well in the 880, 
while Al Hillman and Dick Ben- 
jamin, should garner a goodly 
number of points in the mile and 
two mile, respectively. Ralph 
Strachan and Clark Young will 
be entered in the hurdles events. 

Moving into the field events. 

, Bowdoin' s strength will be felt in 
■ the high jump with such men as 
| Bob Buckley. Herb Hanson, Deane 
Gray, and Jack Stowe. Johnny 
; Matthews and Strachan are sched- 
uled to compete in the broad jump, 
and Hal Bunting and Rocky In- 
galks will represent the Big White 

i in the pole vault. 


In the shotput Jack Clifford will 
be assisted by •newcomer Bob 
O'Brien. Clark Young and Bill 
Elliot are slated as the Bowdoin 
entries in the discus throw, while 
the latter is paired with Art Key- 
lor in the javelin. George Per- 
kins, "Doc" Gauvreau, and Char- 
lie Goodale will be Bowdoin's 
weightmen in the 16-pound ham- 

Following the Vermont contest, 
the Polar Bear trackmen will 
travel to Boston, May 2, to com- 
pete against Bost6n College in a 
dual meet. The State Champion- 
ship meet will be held at Whittier 
Field, May 9, and the season will 
close with the I.C.4A. meet in Phil- 
adelphia, May 29-30.

Sawyer Places First In 
State Oratory Contest 

Last Monday night, Herbert H. 
Sawyer '45 grabbed for Bowdoin 
first honors in the Maine State 
Prize Speaking Contest, the finals 
of which were broadcast over 
WGAN. All four of the Maine col- 
leges were represented in this lo- 
cal continuation of the now defunct 
National Oratohcals, which was 
sponsored by the National Associa- 
tion for the Promotion of Peace, 
and true to form all four speakers 
talked about Peace. 

Sawyer, the first speaker, used 
as a topic "Is War to be With Us 
Forever?" and advocated a re- 
vised, rejuvenated League of Na- 

He was followed by Norman 
Temple of Bates whose subject was 
"Majesty, Justice and Peace," Al- 
bert Smaha of the University of 
Maine whose declamed an original 
composition, "They Shall Not Have 
Died in Vain," and Gerald Good- 
man of Colby who dealt with the 
question of a lasting peace with a 
speech of the same name. Al Perry 
of Bowdoin was master of cere- 
monies and the judges were Milton 
JD. Proctor, President of Westbrook 
Junior College, **red C. Scribner of 
Portland, and Lawrence D. Holmes 
of the faculty of Portland Junior

Fraternities Announce 
Newly Elected Officers 

The following fraternities an- 
nounce officers for 1943 after re- 
cent house elections: Alpha Delta 
Phi — president, Marshall Picken; 
vice-president, Macomber ' Lord; 
secretary', Wallace Moore; treas- 
urer, James Bpgshaw; steward, 
Robert Stuart. 

Psi Upsilon — president, Edward 
Coombs; vice-president, Steven 
Carlson ; secretary, Anthony 
Eaton; treasurer, James Do! an; 
steward, Ralph Kidd. 

Chi Psi — president, Edward Sim- 
onds; vice-president, Harry Two- 
mey; secretary, Rudolph Flinker; 
treasurer, Robert Brown. 

Theta Delta Chi— president, 
John Jaques; secretary, Donald 

Glenn R. Mclntire, College Bur- 
sar, gave a character sketch of 
A. Melanson Dunham, the man 
who made snowshoes for Robert E. 
Peary's expedition of discovery of 
the North Pole in 1909. Mclntire 
reminded us that "Bowdoin men 
ought to remember — with pride — 
that their college has produced 
men like Robert E. Peary with 
vision and courage and strength to 
go out beyond the safe and the 
easy and the known," but that 
"We should also remember that 
work like his is possible only when 
honest craftsmen like Mellie Dun- 
ham furnish tools and equipment 
for "he had the kind of integrity 
which compels a men to scorn de- 
fective or shoddy material and the 
kind of -work which will barely 
get by." 

Although Dunham made his liv- 
i ing by his farm, his skilled trade 
was snowshoe making, and his sec- 
ond hobby was playing the fiddle. 
He won some honors in the latter 
line as well as in the former, but 
he never considered himself an 
"eminent violinist," as one jour- 
nalist wrote of him. According 
to Mclntire, "he had an assured 
humility, something shared by the 
best of country people and the 
very great." 

Professor Edward C. Kirkland of 
the history department spoke in 
Chapel yesterday in celebration of 
Pan-American Day. Professor Dag- 
gett presided at the service. 

Professor Kirkland said that al- 
though the United States has 
adopted the "Good Neighbor" pol- 
icy in preference to the old "Big 
Stick," it cannot be expected that 
this new policy wall work as effi- 
ciently as might be hoped until 
some period of time has elapsed. 

In further recognition of Pan 
American Day, Mrs. Kenneth C. 'M. 
Sills, head of the Pan American 
Union of Women in Maine, enter- 
tained at her home for Pan Amer- 
ican students from Bowdoin and 
Colby. Those from Bowdoin were 
Morris Curiel, Ernesto Franco, 
Bruce Elliott, and Wallace Philoon. 


The College Treasurer and 
Bursar have announced that, be- 
ginning Monday, April 6, their 
office* will be open at the fol- 
lowing hours: 

Every week-day (except Sat- 
urday) 8:30 to 12:00, 1:30 to 
4:30; Saturday 8:30 to 12:00.

In the twenty-first Student Re- 
cital on April 19, at 3.00 p.m. in the 
Moulton Union, John E. Williams, 
Jr., will be assisted by his father, 
John E. Williams. Mr. Williams, 
who has been tenor soloist at the 
Emmanuel Church in Boston for 
over twenty years, will sing, "Be- 
loved, It is Morn" by Aylward, and 
"The Trumpeter" by Dix. Father 
and son will then sing two duets. 
"The Hunting Song" by Bullard 
and ."Watchman, What of the 
Night," by Sargent. 

John Williams, Jr., will then sing 
a series of selections from Handel's 
"Messiah" and a group of arias 
from Mendelssohn's "Elijah." He 
will sing also "Come to the Fair" 
by Martin; "Minnelied, a German 
Folk Song! "The Bitterness of

Closing a longer than usual 
schedule of 17 debates with a con- 
test against Pembroke College last 
Friday, the Bowdoin Debating 
Council wound up business today 
by holding its annual meeting. 

Carolyn Collins and Lois Dwight 
of Pembroke debated with Robert 
H. Lunt '42 and Lacey B. Smith 
'44 on the question of federal reg- 
ulation of labor unions. Bowdoin 
took the negative position. Re- 
tiring president Lewis V. Vafiades 
'42 presided. 

Last Thursday witnessed a dual 
contest with the University of 
iNew Hampshire. The home team 
of Vafiades and Pray upheld the 
negative of the question of com- 
pulsory military training while Al- 
fred M. Perry, Jr. '45 and John J. 
Fahey, Jr. '45, who went to New 
Hampsire, took the affirmative. 

Labor union regulation was 
the subject of the Tufts dual meet 
held last Wednesday. Bowdoin 
upheld the affirmative in both en- 
counters. A Tufts team of Eliza- 
beth King and Edward Mulchey 
met a Bowdoin team of Herbert 
H. Sawyer • '45 and Kendall M. 
Cole '44 in Hubbard Hall. Lewis 
V. Vafiades '42 and Waldo Pray 
'45 travelled to Tufts.

Congregational Church 

Last Sunday morning in the

The Bowdoin Christian Associa-

in which several members of the 
student body participated. 

There were two sermons given 
during the service. George Mor- 
rison talked on the subject of en- 
durance, while Alfred W. Burns 
discussed moral regeneration based 
upon a scriptural theme. James 
C. Lunt delivered the invocation 
and Gerald W. Blakely gave the 
responsive reading. The scripture 
reading was given by Jesse Corum.

That purple patch of hair pulling, eye scratching, and 

female fisticufs put on by the Lewiston High School here Sat- 
urday in their play, "Sunday Costs Five Pesos," was by far 
the most outstanding cat-fight staged on the peaceful Bow- 
doin campus for some time. It was the healthiest histrionic 
hair hauling we have ever viewed on any stage, all of which, 
plus a little poetic license, reminds us that the Bowdoin house 
parties will pop up not too far in the future.

The field of dentistry today 
offers to college students an at- 
tractive career. It provides a 
worthy intellectual challenge, a

teaching in this division of 
medical science and art. 

The University of Pennsyl-

Near State House 

What about this unconfirmed 
rumor which whispers that the 
girls at Bangor High School have 
been warned against the wide- 
open houseparties regularly held 
at Bowdoin? We have been led 
to understand that the faculty of 
the college was rather perturbed 
over the affair at one of the re- 
cent meetings of that Bowdoin 
"council of tribal elders." Stop 
me if I'm wrong . . . 

We went down to the Cumber- 
land the other night to disprove 
the advertising angle which stated 
that "Woman of the Year" would 
win the Academy Award. A good 
show with a weak ending, but we 
don't think it will make it . . . 
P. S. We have now arranged for 
seats in Boston for Miss Hep- 
burn's show at the Colonial there 
. . . Several members of the 
Bowdoin Masque and Gown had 
rides in a Jeep at Fort McKinley 
the other night. If they can swin- 
dle a ride in a Peep now, another 
ambition will have been ful- 
filled . . . 

The outstanding movie of the 
year in an inconsequential sort of 
way is "The Male Animal" which 
was a beautiful satire on football 
rallies, a loveable picture of young 
married college life, and a glance 
at the revolutionary spirit break- 
ing through in an English major 
who is passing through that stage, 
you know. The one Professor on 
campus who should know some- 
thing about Midwestern College 
(Ohio State to you) 'was rather 
disappointed, although he recog- 
nized in Dean Damon, the man 

who got him his appointment to 
.teach there for seven years . . . 

An orchid to these members of 
the college who made the stay of 
the high school thespians so well 
enjoyed. "They didn't have to go 
out of their way to be so nice 
to us!" And by the way, it was 
rather a morbid afternoon in Mem. 
last Saturday with someone going 
crazy in each of the plays. Al- 
though no one went crazy on stage 
in the Bar Harbor play, we have 
come to the conclusion that the 
author was nuts in that in- 
stance . . . 

I WANT TO KNOW: Who the 
pretty girl was who sat at the 
head of the bed during the per- 
formance of "Room Service," 
arena style, in the Moulton Union 
Lounge? Comments have been 
made off and on ever since her 
lovely appearance, and after 
having looked at her photo 
again (the picture is on the 
Masque and Gown bulletin board), 
I would like to meet her. Will 
someone please help me? . . . 
Reward! . . . 

While I'm at it I would like 
to say hello to the Wellesley girl 
who apparently reads this column 
too. "Too Lonely Hearts," I 
should say. We were quoted re- 
cently in the Wellesley paper, 
which puts our ego back on the 
pedestal until next time . . . 

As we observed three weeks ago, 
Spring is here . . . We have ter- 
rible trouble with the editorial 
"we" and the egotistical "I" in 
this column, don't I? . . .

ter. These three pitchers should 

develope into a strong hurling. de- 

Colby is far from weak this year 
with Captain Joe Slattery and sev- 
eral others returning from last 
year's aggregation. In 1941, Slat- 
tery, a minute lefthander who won 
all but one of his state series en- 
counters, played outfield for his 
hitting power when he was not 
pitching. The Mules' infield will 
be composed of Laliberte at sec- 
ond and three of the following: 
Buddy Marshall, Micco Pulia, 
Mitch Jaworski, Benny Zecker, 
and Tommy Norton. Laliberte, 
the only veteran, is a strong hit- 
ter. Coach Eddie Roundy has his 
complete outfield back this year 
also. Eddie Loring, Milt Stillwell, 
and Bob Dennison are all slug- 
ging, experienced players. 

This Colby-Bowdoin game is the 
first of the state series encounters 
of this year. With Hunter pitch- 
ing, the odds would have been on 
the Big White, but with Slattery, 
pitching for the Mules, the game 
is a toss-up.

As everyone knows, the DU's 
and the Zetes are going to feed 
together during the much-looked- 
forward-to summer session. To 
pluck a gem from a former Orient, 
"The dining facilities of the DU 
house will be used, including the 
dining room and the kitchen." We 
are immensely relieved that they 
are not going to eat on the roof. 

In a recent chat with a couple 
of DU's, we managed to gather 
the information that Delta Up- 
silon is, allegedly, the most cos- 
mopolitan house on campus, and 
that it has Bowdoin's greatest col- 
j lection of individualists; there is 
'also a group of expert needlers — 
[that's the word used — of which 
i Bob Bassinette seems to be the 
j leader. While discussing odds and 
i ends, we might as well mention 
( the DU dance hall, one of the 
two on campus, the main feature 
of which seems to be the paintings 
jof scantily clad females which 
adorn the walls. Center of life 
on the second floor of the house 
is the canteen, sometimes called 
Kimball Union, after its propri- 
etor, Mr. Luthene Gilman Kim-

'Bowdoin On Air' Features 
Houseparty Date In Skit 

Tonight at eight o'clock, over station WGAN, Bowdoin 
on the Air presents the young lady pictured above as the star 
in an original melodrama concerning Ivy Houseparties of a 
bygone generation. The authors of the play have declined to 
divulge the' contest of the skit, but listeners will be assured 
that they will not fall asleep during the program. 

The authors of the melodrama, which will be full of gas- 
lights, stagecoaches, and waltzes, as played by Les Hite, desire 
to remain anonymous, they told your reporter late today, as 
he. visited ihem m_ Jheir tall corn field, where they are_gr owinj|-

fine performance by Miss Leach.

Launch Alumni Fund Drive 
To Meet Added War Costs 


Interest in the wartime campaign of the Bowdoin Alumni Fund reached a new peak 
this week as undergraduates and College officials looked to more than 5,700 loyal Bowdoin 
Alumni to come to the aid of the College in an hour when the importance of the Alumni 
Fund was more realized than ever before. 

The goal of the Fund this year is $22,000. The Directors 
of the Alumni Fund have sounded the call and the campaign 
is underway through the several Class Agents who have in- 
tensified their drive for top contribution honors.

On Saturday. April 11, the an- 
nual meeting of the committee of 
buildings and grounds for Bow- 
doin College was held. The meet- 
ing was purely routine, as by nec-

(his year to making only the nec- 
j cssary repairs. 

Professor Stanley Chase of the 

committee .mentioned that it is 

' doing its best to cope with the 

drainage problem. Contrary to 

: popular undergraduate belief, this 

condition has been greatly Lm- 

; proved during past years, for at 

one time a pair of hip boots was 

'a necessary part of every teach- 

' er's equipment, he said. Each 

year a number of dry wells have 

I been dug to take care of the 

' spring rains. These have helped, 

but the drainage is still far from 

1 perfect. 

One reason' for this may be the 
dirt road behind the Science Build- 
ing, which greatly affects the cam- 
pus drainage. The town this year 
considered a petition for improv- 
ing this road, but at the last min- 
ute it was decided to postpone 
this job until after the war.

We don't wish to detract from 
the better points of the Zeta Psi 
fraternity house, which is one of 
the best on campus, but for the 
fun of it we'll discuss some of its 
more interesting physical features. 
First, have you ever tried to navi- 
gate your way through Zeta Psi's 
circular driveway when it is al- 
ready stuffed with cars and ve- 

hicles owned by the brothers? We

of the house provides a beautiful 
spot for sunbathing. The Zete bar 
is unique. From all accounts, its 
capacity is limited to two quarts 
of beer and a pint-sized bartender.

Exams Taken Tuesday 
For State Scholarships 

Tuesday in many towns through- 
out the state examinations were 
given to students who are apply- 
ing for one of the four annual 
State of Maine Scholarships to 
Bowdoin. These scholarship ex- 
aminations are competitive and 
are designed to test the general 
knowledge and scholastic achieve- 
ment of the applicants. Those 
competing took an English test, 
an informational test, and had 
their choice of either a Math, or 
Latin quiz. 

The state is divided up into four 
sections and one scholarship is 
awarded to a student from each 
district. The tests were given this 
year in Houlton, Machias, Bangor, 
Farmington. Fryeburg, Rockland, 
and Brunswick. They were given 
at these towns by members of 
the Bowdoin faculty or by former 
graduates. From each group whb 
took the examination, a certain 
few will be selected to come to 
the college and have personal in- 
terviews with the scholarship

the nation, and has responded 
quickly to all the requests of the 
War Department. Bowdoin is 
prepared to give the finest edu- 
cation and training possible to 
those boys now entering its halls.

Last Friday night C. Wilbert 
j Snow '07, read selections from his 
I poems. Professor Robert P. T. 
Coffin introduced the speaker, say- 
ing that Mr. Snow is greatly re- 
sponsible for making Maine known 
to the nation. 

Mr. Snow began by reading sev- 
eral poems reflecting the impact 
of the present war on the artistic 
mind. One of these was a ballad 
poem in fifteenth century stjyle of 
the fight of the antiquated con- 
voy ship "Jervis Bay" undeif Cap- 
tain Fogarty Feagan. 

The rest of the poems were of 
the Maine coast, and several chil- 
dren's poems. Mr. Snow said that 
despite the critics who decry re- 
gionalism, a poet should write 
about his native soil because there 
will always be something in his 
poetry that reflects its influence 
on his. 

The 'children's poems were from 
his new book yet to be published. 
He explained that some of these 
were for children and some de- 
signed for grown-ups.

A college campus is a grand 
locale for cheap talk, and last 
week seemed to be a congenial 
one, for wandering around this 
place in the interim between the 
Dance Committee's decision and 
Saturday night we gathered to- 
gether the following bizarre string 
of sagacious pearls— "Who is this 
guy Hite anyhow? We dish out 
live bucks for a guy we can hear 
in Portland for half-a-dollar. Let's 
'have less Hite. Hite is playing a 
dance at Morse High School for 
only eighty-five per. Why couldn't 
we have Goodman? Ricker got 
him for Friday. ,No I never heard 
i this guy, but I know he's no good." 
In the first place, Les Hite is 
not playing Morse High School 
or any other similar joint for 
i eighty-five per; and the "Uncon- 
querable" Mai Hallett. not Good- 
man is playing in Portland on Fri- 
day; and if you want to hold Bow- 
doin Houseparties at Ricker go to 
; it — We wish Uie sailors good luck! 
; As to whether Les Hite was a 
: good choice as a Gym Dance Band, 
|we weren't quite sure ourselvesV 
' We heard "Board Meeting" last 
year on the "9:20 Club." but that's 
; not the criterion some people 
! think it is, so we decided to bum 
; our way down to the Portland 
: dance spot to find out just how 
Igood "this guy Hite" really was. 
The band is good — not sensa- 
i tional, or great, nor is it a Basie- 
| beater. Nor is it anything that 
Frazier and the jazzmen would 
rave over. It is, however, mellow 

I on the sweet and clear, integrated, 
land powerful on the swing with 
ian amazing ability to change from 
lone to another. At Ricker the 
jband played about six jump tunes 
i to every four sweet, but as Chuck 
Evans, the manager told me, they 
were playing to a crowd that was 
strictly jitteroo, and we have their 
assurance to give us plenty of 
the mor;» danceable at our Ivy 
Hing. According to Les himself 
the band's only style is to play 
the "Sweetest .music and the 
swingiest music" and to cater to 
the clientele. According to my 
ears and the ears of fifteen other 
Bowdoin students who thought it 
worthwhile to drop down Satur- 
day night, this wasn't such an ex- 
aggeration. Les swaps his sweet 
arrangements for Basic's swing 
stuff thus combining the talents 
of two excellent arrangers -Van 
Alexander for the sweet, and Don 
Redman on the more powerful 
stuff. The popular dance numbers 
are all played in a distinctly 
white style, the saxes more like 
Shaw than Miller and the brass 
reminiscent of Spivak, and the 
rhythm very reserved. The vocal- 
ist also sounds quite white, though 
the Ricker sound system nearly 
ruined all his attempts. When the 
band waxes hot, the style is dis- 
tinctly Sepia (a term which too 
often is used to cover all colored 
bands but which actually- means 
the Kansas City style of men like 
Basie and Jay McShann).

This week Bowdoin welcomes heart- 
ily more than 200 feminine guests com- 
ing from all parts of the East to join in 
the traditional Ivy houseparty celebra- 
tion here. It is significant that the college 
still celebrates Ivy in a time when so 
many of our traditions are being aban- 
doned of necessity. The fact that Ivy is 
still on the spring calendar at Bowdoin 
is a reminder of the place that this event 
holds on our campus. 

We welcome the hundreds of girls 
who are coming. They will have a grand 
• time. It will be a weekend of merriment 
and it is well for the undergraduates to 
relax just for a moment during war- 

This may be the last Ivy. We hope 
not, but we cannot predict what the 
future holds in store for all of us, only 
time will tell. So let this Ivy be a merry 
and a happy one for all and let it stand 
as a memory of what was the tradition of 

Let us not forget, this year, those who 
would be here if. the world were not at 
war — those brave Bowdoin men who 
will celebrate Ivy in the service of our 
country. To them we pay tribute — they 
are providing the really big feature of 
this year's Bowdoin Ivy program. 

Here, under "bright skies" the pro- 
gram will not be as extensive as usual 
but it will be an Ivy with all the spirit 
that has ever gone into a Bowdoin house- 
party. There will be the traditional exer- 
cises Friday afternoon, the annual play, 
the gala gym dance, the fraternity pic- 
nics on Saturday, the dances in the eve- 
ning. The military flavor will add some- 
thing new to the celebration and the 
spirit of gay youth will prevail. 

Again, we extend a warm welcome to 
the Ivy guests.

Alumni Fund drive, the most important 
in the history of the college. Student in- 
terest in this drive is greater than in any 
drive the college has ever put on. Under- 
graduates are looking to the alumni to 
maintain the college income. 

This is the time for every alumnus to 
show his loyalty to Bowdoin. Each man 
should mike a donation to the Alumni 
Fund this year. No contribution is too 
small not to be appreciated by the boys 
"Who are working their way through col- 
lege and doing it the hard way. 
, The idea is best summed up in the 
words of the editor of the Orient 26 
years ago in a letter this month to his 
classmates urging them to give to the 
Fund this year. He says in part: 

"The need of the college is greater 
than ever before — greater even than in 
• those dark days of 1933. Income from in- 
vestments continues at low levels. The 
Alumni Fund balances the budget. All 
subscriptions over a certain amount are 
used for scholarships. The need for 

scholarships is greater than ever before, 
because, with the elimination of summer 
vacation, undergraduates have no oppor- 
tunity to earn during the summer 
months — their college expenses con- 
tinue, their chance to earn disappears. 
So a gift to the Fund means a balanced 
budget and more scholarships. 

"United States War Bonds and 
Stamps may be given in place of cash. 
Thus a gift in bonds or stamps helps 
boost the Fund and beat the Japs. That's 
the nearest thing to having your cake 
and eating it, killing two birds with one 
stone, and making two blades of grass 
grow where only one flourished before." 

"Who knows — the bond you give to 
the Fund may help buy a bomber driven 
by a Bowdoin pilot." 

Let every Bowdoin man answer the 
wartime call of his college. Xet each 
and every one of those loyal alumni 
make the best of this opportunity to help 
the college, help the undergraduates and 
help the country to win the war. 

The Bowdoin Alumni Fund is worthy 
of your endorsement. GIVE. Give loy- 
ally and willingly and Bowdoin will be 
forever grateful to you. 


Less than 100 students were on hand 
at chapel services last Saturday morning 
to hear Dean Paul Nixon analyze the 
scholastic situation here at Bowdoin. 
Last Week we presented our analysis as 
to the reasons for the scholastic "black- 
out" here with forty per cent of the un- 
dergraduate body failing in at least one 
course. The Dean's analysis, one of the 
soundest and wisest bits of judgment 
we have ever heard, has crystallized the 
situation. In cold English, he "hit the 
nail right on the head." 

The Dean's speech is worthy of being 
brought to the attention of all and we 
quote the second half of the address: 

"It should anger us to see loafing and 
greed in defense industries, whether on 
the part of employees or owners. It 
should anger us even more to see loafing 
and playboy stuff on a college campus. 
College students who don't and won't 
put in at least a FORTY HOUR 
WORKING WSEK, not necessarily on 
studies but on things that really matter, 
have mighty small reason for any self- 
respect or the respect of any one else, 
and should be informed of the fact by 
their associates, not merely by their 
Deans. Incidentally, one of the best ways 
of reducing the draft age would be to 
have the idea get abroad that American 
undergraduates were jovially marking 
time till they reached twenty. - 

"I admire a young fellow who next 
June is volunteering for one of the most 
hazardous forms of the Service, and I 
understand how he finds it hard to study 
Economics or History or English. I'd ad- 
mire him still more if he could and did 
study. But I can't understand how a 
young fellow a year or two away from 
the draft, and without any real or imme- 
diate idea of volunteering, can be content 
merely to have a good time at college, 
and let the rest of the world take the rap. 
It's eminently proper to stay in college 
and do your college job. But it's eminent- 
ly improper to stay in college and bum 
along, and let George do it. 

"It's time, I say, for all of us to refash- 
ion ourselves and those about us. And 
it's time for all fraternities in a college, 
such as Bowdoin, to assume more group 
responsibility and not let a small, or 
large, group of its members give it the 
reputation of fiddling while Rome 
burned,, or of getting fuddled while the 
United States lost the most vital war in 
its history." 



By Douglas Carmiehael 

WEBSTER defines the word "in- 
tellectual," used as a noun, as 
"an intellectual person, pi. such 
persons as a social class; also (of- 
ten cap.) a member of a party or 
faction claiming to represent, or 
regarded as representing, intelli- 
gent opinion." As regards the first 
part of this definition, we have lit- 
tle comment to make. If you want 
to say that an intellectual is an in- 
tellectual person, it's all right with 
us. It is the latter part of the defi- 
nition that has us interested. Note 
that Webster does not say that an 
intellectual is one who represents 
intelligent opinion; he is one of a 
group which claims to represent it 
or is regarded as representing it. 

¥T seems to us that this defini- 
*■ tion has a great deal of pith 
and application, particularly as re- 
gards college life. The word "in- 
tellectual" apparently has a cer- 
tain glamor to which nearly all of 
us, at least occasionally, fall vic- 
tim. We like to think of ourselves 
as being "intellectual"; we like to 
be considered so by our acquaint- 
ances. (Our close friends probably 
know us to well to be fooled.) But 
so far as we can observe, the iptel- 
lectualism of most of our so-called 
undergraduate intellectuals lies al- 
most wholly in their own claims, or 
perhaps in general report if the 
claims are repeated often enough 
wtih sufficient emphasis. If you be- 
lieve very strongly in yourself, 
other people are unusally willing to 
do so too. 

rpHE typical student "intellect- 
Mi ua i" — and he's usually the sort 
who replies "student" on question- 
naires when asked for his occupa- 
tion is apt to specialize in one or 
two fields, such as politics or the 
arts in their theoretical aspects. 
where few facts can be proved 
against him. He usually digs up a 
set of unusual hypotheses about 
anything frcm the proper use of 
the trochaic dimeter in free verse 
to the dimensions of time or the 
values of proportional representa- 
tion as a general panacea for all 
political ills, and he expounds those 
hypotheses to anyone who'll listen 
at any opportunity he gets. The in- 
tellectual's field of interest, though, 
is almost invariably theoretical, 
and his theories are such that few 
people will agree with them. Above 
all, he cannot afford to be common- 
place or conventional in his ideas 
and tastes; it would ruin his repu- 
tation. He probably also has a ra- 
ther childish desire to shock peo- 
ple as a means of obtaining atten- 
tion. In the same way, many fion- 
intellectuals boast of their exploits 
in the local temples of Bacchus 


AS an example of the grip which 
"■ "intellectualism" has on the 
college population, we may cite an 
incident we observed in which a 
senior, on being told he was not in- 
tellectual, urged his accuser to

style. Seat prices are as follows: 
seventy-five cents for reserved 
seats for persons not attending 
college; fifty cents for a regular

the college; and twenty-five cents 
plus presentation of blanket tax

dents and their dates 

Because of the war situation and 
its effect on college activities in 
general, fraternity house programs 
are being considerably curtailed 
this year. Complying with Presi- 
dent Sills' request that dance ex- 
penses be kept as low as possible, 
most houses are limiting their 
Saturday night activities to rec- 
ords and impromptu entertain- 
ment. Several houses have planned 
picnics Saturday afternoon but do 
not know definitely at this writing 
where they will be held. 

The wayward A. D.'s plan to 
pack up a picnic, a record player, 
and Some tea pots and spend the 
day at "Windham Pines" near 
Raymond. The Psi U's have ru- 
mored something about a picnic 
in the afternoon and a vie dance 
at night. Our fresh air fiends, the 
Chi Psi's, exclaim that it's "Booth- 
bay Harbor or Bust" because they 
can rest up on a hay ride Satur- 
day night. The Dekes are mys- 
teriously silent as yet but mum- 
bled that there might be a picnic 
somewhere and a house vie dance 
sometime at night. Among other 
wanderers are the T. D.'s who 
plan an unprecedented clam bake 
at Lookout Point Inn with a house 
vie dance at night. 

The D. U.'s claim that it's 
t. >o cold for a picnic and that 
they're saving their strength 
for a dance Saturday night, 
music by that sterling group 
of performers, Paul Dearborn 
and His Stepping Toes Rhythm 
from Boston. (This proves 
that they still have dances in 
Boston!) Toppimg an after- 
come outside, vowing to prove upon 
his person that he was. Indeed, in- 
tellectualism does not seem to have 
any definite correlation with intel- 
ligence. Several of the most bril- 
liant men we know would be the 
last in the world to consider them- 
selves intellectual. A possible ex- 
planation might be that this 
pseudo-intellectual ism which is so 
rampant is a gesture of compensa- 
tion which comes from en- 
deavouring to recover from schol- 
astic frustration. 

A LTHOUGH this vice of intellect- 
** ualism seems largely a matter 
of pretense and sham, coascious or 
unconscious, and the number of 
the guilty is immense, nevertheless 
it probably has some value. It pro- 
vides its devotees with an ideal, 
however poor, in an age when 
ideals of any sort are all to rare. 
But it might be good idea for 
many of our college intellectuals 
to look carefully into their opinions 
and examine their sincerity. If the 
shoe fits, put it on.

very satisfactory time after all.

The boys fit into the Basie ar- 
rangements surprisingly well. 
Walter Williams plays a driving 
minor-tinged trumpet very much 
like Buck Clayton of the Basie 
Band, and Al Durham who got 
his K. C. style playing with Andy 
Kirk's Clouds of Joy is strongly 
reminiscent of Dicky Wells. Oscar 
Bradley is NOT the "World's fast- 
est drummer." He does back the 
band up with a steady, even beat, 
however, never commercializing to 
the extent of long flashy solos. For 
that matter you can have the "W. 
F. D." Oscar, incidently took Joe 
Jones' place with the Basie Ork 
when Joe was indisposed. Brown 
plays alto out of the side of his 
mouth looking like Lester Young 
and sounding like Earl Warren, 
and Gerald Widden is a conserva- 
tive Basie. 

The band as yet has no name 
in the East but it has plenty of 
color. Les, due to a lip injury has 
recently desisted from doing solo 
work. He stands up in front lead- 
ing, looking like a shortened 
Ellington and jumping around like 
Madame La Zonga bending over 
to listen to the different sections, 
singing a few jump selections, and 
through it all beaming at and call-

to find out what the setup was. The chief reason for no prac-

tell Just what hoys will be available next fall. Such divisions 
as the C.A.A., Murines, and the Army or Navy may be forced to 
call men earlier than anticipated now. Tentative plans are to 
start football practice at the beginning of the second semester. 
At that time C'oaeh Walsh plans to give the squad a three- 
week workout and then take a week off to give the boys a rest 
and plenty of time for finals at that time. At the beginning 
of the regular fall semester the team will go at it again in ad- 
dition to the newly entered freshmen. The schedule opens on 
the 36th of September and has not been altered yet by the war. 
Bowdoin's position next season will be a very desirable one, 
as it calls for only one out-of-state trip, to Wesleyan, and two

With fhr Interfraternity Softball League more than a week under- 
way, it wouldn't be a bad idea to stop and look over the summaries. 
At the present it looks like the Chi Psi's and the D. U.'s are on the top 
with two wins apiece and no losses to mar their record. The Chi Psi's 
won both their games, the first with the A.D.'s and the other with the 
Thorndikes by a large margin but the D.U.'s were forced to fight all 
the way, their first game going into nine innings and the second win by 
forfeit with the Navy. Following these two houses are the Deke's, 
Sigma Nu's, Psi U's with one victory apiece and no losses; next in line 
are the Kappa Sig's and T.D.'s with one win and one defeat. One loss 
and no victories as yet are the rewards of the Beta's, Thorndike's, and 
Zete's, and the Midshipmen and the A.D.'s have both suffered two de- 
feats. The weather has been no help most of the time so far artd many

vicious grounder to the shortstop 
and reached first. Johnstone flied 
out to the right fielder, and Josse-

bench and made a good catch. The

struck out, Card hit a liner to 
Will Small, and Keller grounded 
to Pierce. LaRochelle made an ;

it was pleasing to see the way 
that Dick Johnstone and Benjy

as good as a double in this game.

Included among the decorations is 
Cush Hayward's car, fondly known 
as "The Bullet," probably because 
it looks like a collection of old 
bullets pressed into a reasonable 
facsimile of an ancient Chewy. 
The car divides its time between 
Charley's and the Zete House. As 
far as we know, Zeta Psi is the 
only fraternity on campus whose 
brothers sleep in bunks. They 
claim that they should be excused 
from calisthenics, since climbing 
in and out of their nests requires 
just as much exertion a*rthe slow 
murder daily perpetrated in the 
gymnasium. At any rate, they're 
better prepared for the navy than 
most of as. 

Zeta Psi is a defense minded 
fraternity. Every night, when the 
curfew rings, some of the broth- 
ers mosey about the house pulling 
down air raid curtains and dous- 
ing lights, as protection against 
night submarine raids. Sounds 
like a good idea for houseparties. 
In addition to this, Ed Woods, 
Sam Belknap, and Bob Paine, all

There seems to be quite a few 
of the brothers of Zeta Psi who 
go in for the finer things of life. 
Al Gregory, for instance, plays the 
toy piccolo. He is willing to ac- 
company any bit of music, be it 
Deep in the Heart of Texas or 
Bethoven's Fifth Symphony, if no 
one objects to his being two keys 
off and three notes behind. Then 
there is Horizontal Jack Shaffner, 
allegedly the laziest man in Bow- 
doin, who will lie three feet from 
the vie and wish someone would 
play a record. A personage of 
great importance in the fraternity 
is Gus, the janitor, who with his 
fatherly advice and counsel and 
quaint witticisms is able to pro- 
vide the Zetes' college education 
with the necessary seasoning. 
If anyone cares, they held a 
dance in conjunction with the 
Betas about 20 years ago. Speak- 
ing of dances, Zeta Psi is one of 
the few houses having a band for 
Ivy houseparties. 

Our informer tells us that the 
Zete House has the best back 
exa/n library on campus, which is 
not an invitation. We just had 

ably good pitching, with Shiff al- 
lowing Bowdoin eight hits and 
Williams yielding only six, for 
such a cold day. Both pitchers 
gave two bases on balls while Shiff 
fanned six to Williams' five.

Bert Mott of Vermont Was the 
most spectacular performer' Of the 
afternoon as he captured firsts in 
the 100 and 200 yard dashes, the 
120 yard high and the 220 yard 
low hurdles, as well as tying with' 
Herb Hanson for first place in the 
high jump. However, the Big 
White's well-balanced aggregation 
overcame Vermont's early advaH 1 - 
tage largely gained by Mott's vic- 
tories. The teams were actually 
tied four events from the end nev- 
ertheless when surprising power in 
the field events gave Bowdoin vic- 
tories in three of the four events 
including a clean sweep of the 
hammer throw. 

Although Hillman and Mott 
were the only two to win more 
than one event, notable perform- 
ances were turned in by Ralph 
Strachan who picked up a second 
in the 220 yard low hurdles and a 
third in the 120 yard high hurdles, 
and Johnnie Matthews who scored 
in the 100 yard dash, 220 yard 
dash, and the broad jump. John- 
nie Dickinson also lived up to the 
expectations created by his recent 
excellent time trials by "taking a 
first in the 440 and a second in 
the 220 and a third in the 100. 

Only record to come from the 
soft track and muddy pits and 
runways was the 158 seconds in 
which Bert Mott won the 120 yard 
high hurdles. This time ties the 
University of Vermont track rec- 
ord set by him a year ago. 

Firsts were divided thus: eight 
for the Polar Bears, six for UVM* 
and one tie. In the 880 he turned 
in the time of two minutes, six 
seconds. Hillman's mile was four 
minutes, forty-eight and six-tenths 

The meet was the first outdoor 
encounter of the season for both 
outfits. May 2 the Big White 
goes to Boston to meet Boston 

the fascinating and irrelevant 
thought that it would be great to 
have a future exam library. Such 
a plan should not be too imprac- 
tical, since the fraternity has more 
of its members on the faculty than 
any other. 

Johnny Banks, Dick Johnstone, 
and Bill Georgitis are varsity 
grtdsters, which means football 
players. Before we forget it, the 
fraternity as a whole won the Stu- 
dent Council Scholarship Cup. Bob 
Edwards is president of the Junior 
class and an associate editor of 
the Orient, while Dick Johnstone 
presidents (to add a new verb to 
the Kings English) the Soph- 
omore class. Bill Craigie is 
managing editor of this issue of 
the Orient. Lindo Ferrini plays 
football and is one of the college's 
leading speakers. Bob Lunt is a 
Phi Bete, a debater, and. to quote 
one of his brothers, "almost every- 

If you want to know when Zeta 
Psi was founded, established at 
Bowdoin, and so forth, see the 
Freshman handbook, or just ask 
any stray freshman. If you want 
to know how many bricks it took 
to build the house — get ever there 
and count 'em.

By Crawford Thayer 

Greetings, you pretty Little things, we hope you enjoy 
Ivy — and Variety. 

Through some freak of hitch- 
hiking nature last Saturday we 
were dropped off in Harvard 
Square. Somewhat over-awed by 
the venerable buildings of that 
"ancient institution on the 
Charles," and rather fearful of be- 
ing captured on the home ground 
of the crimson university while 
carrying a typewriter case bear- 
ing a large BOWDOIN sticker, we 
were slinking furtively down the 
main drag praying silently lest we 
should encounter one or two loose 
Hah-vud men. In fact we were 
quite ill-at-ease because of our 
intrusion until three lanky, non- 
descript high school girls passed 
by, glancing at the sticker. "Bow- 
din," said one of them. "That's 
where Longfellow went!" And 
they passed on. Almost uncon- 
sciously we puffed out our chest, 
and realized that, after all, we had 
something to be proud of . . . 

• ■ 

And, of course, there was that 
drunk Dartmouth graduate who 
told men that night "You don't 
have to dip your flag to anybody." 
He repeated that phrase six times 
in his slight stupor, and I almost 
think he is right ... 

"The MiUey Way" plays arena 
style in the cage Friday after- 
noon. The ham between the base- 
ball—and banquet — slices of bread 
maybe? . . . With the Navy boys 
importing wives and women more 
and more these days, and with the 
annual Ivy hordes descending up- 
on us, dear Bowdoin will be co- 
educational again for a few days 
. . . if you follow . . . And 
speaking of women, VOGUE edi- 
tors please note: This is the sea- 
son for Red in fashions. Although 
with street lights red mean 
"stop," in the instance of cloth- 
ing it apparently means "go" . . .

Britton Reconsiders Ivy's 
Happy, Wacky Incidents 

By Dick Britton 

To that sagacious group of stoodents whose acid remarks 
are intended to make or break a good time, we are indebted 
for such Ivy post mortem pearls as "clubby," "dry," "aw- 
right," "uh huh," and otherwise "the best since last year." As 
a matter of record, there couldn't have been better weather, a 
smoother-running program, or a cooler gym dance. 

The first event of Ivy Day was 
the procession of the dark gowned, 
dignified, and perspiring seniors to 
the chapel where the seniors last 
chapel was held. After a brief 
ceremony, during which President 
SUls read a Bible selection and 
Professor Tillotson directed the 
choir in one song, the assembly 
proceeded to the terrace of the 
Walker Art building led by Mar- 
shall Will Small. Meanwhile, the 
Psi U.'s were competing for the 
honor of officially opening house 
parties by promoting a fire at the 
rear of their "house" and routing 
out the Brunswick Fire Depart- 
ment. Although its Stanley Steam- 
er boilers are getting pretty old. 

the engine gave its all for Bow- 
doin and Psi Upsilon admid cries 
of "have we got any fire insurance 
on this place?" The blaze was 
soon out. 

Highlight of the traditional ex- 
ercises was the presentation by 
Bob Edwards, of a wooden spoon 
to "Zipper" Simonton for being 
the most popular in the junior 
class, was so overcome with emo- 
tion that he was. unable to make 
an acceptance speech and rushed 
off to Wellesley to think it over.

Kennedy Reviews Mrs. Mclntyre's 
Book "Carey Brown" For Orient 

By Robert M. Kennedy 

Kenneth Roberts once said that everyone that had been 
in Maine for more than two summers was either writing or 
thinking about writing a Down-East novel. Perhaps he was 
right. There is material here aplenty for many novels. Every 
harbor has its folksy, whimsical people and every southwest 
wind spreads the dust of 'Tobacco Road" over the pine 

With Carey Browri, Mrs. Mar- 
guerite Mclntyre moves from the 
"folksy" to the "dusty." Her story 
has all the elements of a good 
down to earth novel — a family liv- 
ing in fifth, children making water 
from the back steps, and an illicit 
love affair that does Caldwell one 
better by producing twins. The 
basic elements are there all right, 
but they are there only because 
they are pushed. 

Her treatment is sympathetic. 
She tells the story of the rise of 
Carey Brown from filth to clean- 
liness with all most Victorian sym- 
pathy. The girl picks blueberries 
and goes fishing very nicely in- 
deed. But the account is spoiled by 
the fact that her limping sister 
has had an illegitimate child in the 
chapter before. And for that mat- 
ter the chapter about the sister's 

I illegitimate child is spoiled be- 
I cause anyone can tell that there is 
; going to be a nice blueberry pick- 
ling scene for dessert. 

I don't know how much effort 
! should be put into writing a novel, 
I but it's very apparent that Mrs. 
i Mclntyre has put a lot into Carey 
i Brown. And every bit of it shows 
1 on the surface. I can't help think- 
i ing that she decided to write a 
• good earthy novel and then studied 
j up on her Caldwell and Steinbeck. 
I Then she took a plot and a Maine 
I background and set to work being 
I careful to put on every bit she 
J had learned from her teachers. 
j And the result — well at the risk of 
I getting an extra bill from the 
' Bursar. I say it's one of the most 

I unconcerning novels I've read in a 
i long time. 

Kappa Sigma Becomes Famous 
In Glee Club, Masque & Gown 

By Dick Horn born it 

This week they've got us casing Kappa Sigma — Harps- 
well Street — Phone 270 — Freshman Handbook — page 46 — 
Bowdoin Bugle, page 1 28. 

That takes care of the vital 
statistics so now we'll delve into j 
the non-vital or unessential statis- ' 
tics. At present Kappa Sigma and 
its host of brothers aren't quite 
what they were a short time ago. 
Most of them survived housepar- 
ties. however, with only minor 
abrasions and lacerations. We may 
make mention of this angle later 
but right now let's discuss the new 
lawn which surrounds the house. 
Of course it's not a lawn yet but 
inside information leads us to ex- 
pect that it will be sometime. The 
other day we walked over to Kap- 
pa Sigma in search of one of its 
members and were surprised to 
ace that a bunch of the boys were 
whooping it up with shovels in the 
front yard. At first it lookedlike 
they were, grubbing for cigarette 

butts or a mine — this is war, you 
know. Such was not the case. 
They were just getting the lawn 
ready for application of fertilizer 
and grass seed. Just as things 
were beginning to look very neat 
and nice, one of the boys came 
whooping it across the newly 
raked lawn on horseback, trying 
to do an imitation of Hopalong 
Cassidy. This rodeo-rider was a 
character known as Barrel Burr. 
A week of painstaking research 
has revealed that one of Kappa 
Sigma's most prized possessions 
is a cat- named Bucephalus. Ask 
a K. Sig about his fraternity and 
he'll hand you a long line about 
Bucephalus. The reason for all 
the excitement is that Bucephalus, 
is expected at any time to give

College Is All 
Out In Drive 
For Freshmen 

With Sub-Freshman Week 
End only a week and a half 
away, Bowdoin is swinging in- 
to high in its drive to get qual- 
ified men to enter college. 

The war situation has created an 
almost unprecedented slow-down 
in the number of high school sen- 
iors who are applying for entrance 
to college throughout the country. 
This situation has been expected in 
liberal colleges all over the coun- 
try, but Bowdoin has probably been 
less hard-hit than many colleges 
and universities. 

the undergraduate body is taking a 
really active part in interesting 
men in Bowdoin. In close co-opera- 
tion with Dr. Hammond, Director 
of Admissions, and President Sills, 
the Student Council has distrib- 
uted prospect cards to all under- 
graduates. The purpose of thes:> 
cards is to obtain names of men 
who might be interested in Bow- 
doin, and to send them literature, 
including a catalogue and an invi- 
tation to Sub- Freshman Week End. 
The Council and the Presid mt be- 
lieve that this system has good pos- 
sibilities if the undergraduates will 
cooperate to their fullest. 

The rushing chairmen of the fra- 
ternities are cooperating well with 
the Student Council because, for 
one reason, when the number of 
freshmen who are sure to enter is

Spear '29 Named 
For War Board . 

With Abbott Spear '29 as mem- 
ber for Bowdoin, the newly-creat- 
ed War Service Advisory Bureau 
for Collegiate Alumni of New Eng- 
land has asked for the cooperation 

th e C o l lege, according to Sew- 
ard S. Marsh, acting alumni secre- 

Mr. Spear, who is president of 
the Boston alumni association, 
joins the Advisory Bureau which 
is composed of representatives 
from eleven other colleges. No- 
tices signed by him were recently 
sent to Bowdoin alumni outlining 
the aims of the organization. 

The primary purpose of the Bu- 
reau was said to be "to furnish 
information to all alumni regard- 
ing opportunities for service in 
the armed forces of the United 
States and to receive applications 
for such service." 

Mr. Marsh revealed that the 
Army and Navy's need for men 
with certain specific skills, train- 
ing, experience, and executive abil- 
ity often found only in men with 
college degrees was the reason for 
the establishment of the Bureau. 
To discover such men and to di- 
rect them toward Army and Navy 
commissions will be the chief work 
of the group. 

This board has its headquarters 
at the Harvard Club of Boston and 
has retained John Shillito as ex- 
ecutive secretary. Mr. Marsh urges 
that interested alumni seek in- 
formation or advice there. 

Latest Quill Is Issued For 
First Day Of Houseparties 

• ™~ — — — — ^— — — — — — — — — 

By John Jaques 

"The new Quill is pretty poor!" This was the criticism that 1 have heard most about the 
recent issue of Bowdoin's literary magazine. And there is some justification for caustic cen- 
suring of the neat-appearing copy with its new page setup, but as too frequently is the case 
campus opinion seems to have been founded on skimpy evidence and hastily formed judgment. 
I found one disappointing book review that spoiled the whole issue for me, but there were 
two excellent articles, two clever short stories, and. a good example of a poetic translation of 
Horace's ode, "Carpe Diem." 

The new "Quill" was far from 
poor. Doctor Taylor's article on 
"Morale and Reason" is the sort of 
logical writing that the faculty 
should give the students as an ex- 
ample. It is an oft-heard conclusion 
— that we should build now for the 
future — but I got a new. slant from 
the "faith-point" idea. 

Likewise commendable for its 
thoughtful clarity was Lincoln 
Johnson's article entitled "Art and 
Realism" which he had presented 
as a speech in the Class of 1868 
Prize Contest. Here again a clear 
presentation of a good idea pleased 
me. But Link's prose style was in 
more colorful, eye-catching 
phrases. He dressed up his subject 
which I would have thought to 
have been necessary to assure a 
reading by the undergraduates. 


The Reverend Thompson E. Ash- 
by. pastor of the College Church in 
Brunswick, was the principal 
speaker at Sunday Chapel on April 
26, 1942. President Sills introduced 
and paid tribute to Dr. Ashby. 

The president said that Bowdoin 
was fortunate to have such a man 
as its friend for a period of twenty- 
five years. The length of Dr. Ash- 
by's stay in Brunswick corresponds 
very nearly with that of President 
Sills. During this time, all Bowdoin 
commencements have been held at 
the College Church. 

Dr. Ashby has often been a 
speaker at both week day and Sun- 
day chapel services. 

Varsity Eligibility For 
Frosh May Come In '43 

When interviewed Monday, 
Mai Morrell. Director of Ath- 
letics, stated that thus far Bow- 
doin has made no provision for 
allowing freshmen to participate 
in varsity sports next year or 
for the duration of the war. 
This issue may possibly be de- 
cided at a meeting of the facul- 
ty on May 11. 

Mr. Morrell said that no col- 
lege was justified In immediate- 
ly panning the Eligibility mle for 
freshmen, and that a good many 
institutions have Just used it as 
an excuse to at track athletes. 


In chapel last Friday morning, 
Mr. Robert Mackie, General Sec- 
retary of the World Student Chris- 
tian Association, compared Amer- 
ican colleges, hardly touched by 
the war as yet, to colleges and uni- 
versities in many other parts of the 
world now fighting for their very 

Although the Association tries to 
help men of all races, Mr. Mackie 
pointed out that higher education 
has ceased entirely in Czeehow- 
slovakia and Poland, whilst the 
rest of the countries of Europe and 
Asia had had their educational sys- 
tems disrupted in varying degrees, 
and he spoke particularly of the 
Chinese students who, when bomb- 
ed out of the schools, migrated in- 
land, there to take up their studies 

The speaker closed by saying, 
"What we do now to help these 
students is a measure of how much 
we believe in what we arewighting 

But I find that the article was read 
and liked by a good number of the : 
students. The parallel between mu- 
sic and art was a good one and ap- : 
peals to a prominent feature of col- 1 
legiate thought.

book, Robert S. Burton '43 was the Editor-in-Chief with the 
assistance of Donald Bramley '44, George A. Burpee '44, 
George W. Craigie '44, James R. Higgins '44. Charles M.

Golf Men Defeat 
Maine And Bates 

Coach Bob Miller's golf men 
scored a double killing when they 
stopped Maine 5 to 4 last Thurs- 
day, and went on, to submerge 
Bates on Monday by the lopsided 
score of 9 to 0. 

In the first bracket of the Maine 
encounter Walter Reid, who is 
junior state champion, beat Cap- 
tain Joe McKay two and one. This 
was the renewal of an old rivalry 
for these two. Maine's Griffee 
overcame John Baxter one up. In 
the first bracket the best ball was 
even, and Maine scored 2 x k to 
Bowdoin's % point. 

Jack Hoopes stopped Forrester 
of Maine two and one to open the 
second bracket. Then Pratt beat 
our own Bill Simonton three and 
two. Again the best ball was 
equally divided giving each team 
lVs points for the bracket. 

The third and deciding bracket 
saw Herb Griffith nail the Black 
Bear's Gunn four and three. Bob 
Simpson then conquered Abbott of 
Maine two and one. Bowdoin won

This publication, which had its 
start in 1858 is*" the yearbook of 
the junior class and it is, at the 
same time, one of the most com- 
plete records of the college year. 
It appears at Ivy every year. 

Especially timely was the book's 
dedication. The Bugle was dedi- 
cated to Professor Boyd W. Bart- 
let t's who is leaving in June to 
take a post as instructor at the 
United States Military Academy. 
The following is a quotation 'from 
the Bugle: "In recognition of his 
help and patience as Professor of 
Physics .... his invaluable aid 
as head of Civilian Pilot Training 
at Bowdoin .... his sincere and 
fair counsel as adviser to any un- 
dergraduates .... anytime 
.... and his contribution to 
our life at Bowdoin as a genuine 
friend .... we .... the Class 
of 1943, deem it an honor to dedi- 
cate this Bowdoin Bugle to Pro- 
fessor Boyd Wheeler Bartlett." 

Following the dedication, there 

111 a section devoted to the facul- 
ty, in which the history of every 
professor is given. There is also 
a listing of the presidents, the 
: board of trustees, the overseers, 
jand other officers of the College. 
The pictures of the juniors were 
arranged somewhat differently this 
year with three instead of two 
I photographs to a page. The next 
j section is that of the activities.

izations appears. The following

Bowdoin Playwrights 
Plan Summer Plays

the summer sesaion, the Masque

operation. As far as immediate 
plans are concerned, will 
be a repeat performance or the 
Ivy Play, "The Milky Way," for 
the sub-freshmen at 8:15 a week 
from Friday. At least half of 
the gate receipts will go to the 

Twenty-six men have signed 
up for work during the summer 
session, so three plays instead of 
five originally planned are all 
that it will be possible to pro- 
duce. The Student's Playwright 
Guild is working on several full- 
length plays at present but no 
further Information on these will 
be available until the board has 
passed judgment on the finished 
products. Charlie Mergendahl 
is in the Navy now so it Is un- 
likely that his new play will be 
tried out here this summer.

VanCleve Praises Campus 
Wardens' Efficiency And 
Cooperation With Town 

By Philip Hoffman 

Preparing for a test blackout of the Brunswick area ex- 
pected between May 6 and 10, all Civilian Defense services of 
the town and college participated in a practice mobilization 
and assembly on Sunday afternoon under the general review 
of Carleton G. Lane, Coordinator of Portland Civilian De- 

It was the first time that all 
branches of the defense organiza- 
tions of the town and campus had 
been summoned to their posts by 
the 5-5-5 blasts of the fire siren. 
Units included in the test were 
the fire and police departments, 
Red Cross, highway, canteen, dem- 
olition, sanitation, and public util- 
ities groups. Shortly after the 
alert signal the all clear signal or 
2-2-2 blasts was sounded. This 
was the signal this time for all 
workers to go to the Town Hall 
to hear an address by the visiting 
Mr. Lane. 

Campus Test Satisfactory 

Professor Thomas C. Van Cleve, 
Campus Post Warden, expressed 
satisfaction with the functioning 
of the self-sufficient college organ- 
ization. Everything was carried 
out as it would be under an actual 
blackout or air raid. Having been 
alerted by telephone from the fire 
station headquarters, he went di- 
rectly to the Campus Post head- 
quarters in Massachusetts Hall. 
Based here also are the two Dep- 
uty Post Wardens just recently 
announced as Professors Cecil T. 
Holmes and Athern P. Daggett. 
Within len minutes Professor Van 
Cleve had telephoned the cryptic 
message "Go to campus post" to 
the Grounds and Buildings Super- 
intendent, the Campus Sector 
Wardens, and the wardens in 
charge of the Science building, the 
Library-, and Museum. 

Students Cooperate 

Although they had no previous 
knowledge of the test, Proctors 
and End Wardens followed the 
general instruction to heed all 
town alerts and quickly reported 
to their Sector Wardens. Profes- 
sor Van Cleve praised the student 
cooperation. He said that there 
may soon be instituted for the 
benefit of the Proctors and End 
Wardens a special campus alert 
signal to supplement the town fire

Bob Russell, Crawford Thayer 
And Bunt Wyman Are Stars In 
Ivy Presentation Of "Milky Way" 

By Richard W. Benjamin 

The Ivy presentation of "The Milky Way" was a great 
success. The play is a well-written comedy which is concerned 
with an attempt to turn the meekest of all milkmen into a 
world's lightweight champion. This original situation is 
ludicrous enough, but mix in one go-getting manager, one 
dumb trainer, one chorus girl, and one sweet and innocent 
home-builder at work on the heart of your boxing hero, and 
you have a rough idea of what the play is like. 

As we said before, the play is 
■ well-written comedy, and per- 
chance it is to this fact that we 
should give most of the credit for 
the play's sjuccess. After seeing a 
few rehearsals, we would have 
given the play up, and it is with 
some surprise that we saw the play 
go off so well. Although the acting 
was passable, it is hardly superior 
except in one or two cases, and be- 
fore making too general a state- 
ment perhaps we should throw a 
few bouquets and say that both 
Crawford B. Thayer and Bob Rus- 
sell turned in very outstanding per- 
formances. Bunt Wyman also de- 
serves honorable mention, al- 
though he was not so consistently 
good as the other two actors men- 

Two other factors which contri- 
buted to the play's success were 
the appreciative audience and the 
fact that it 'Was played arena 
style. We mention these two to- 
gether because they are so closely 
connected. The arena style requires 
the audience to take a greater part 
in the production than an ordinary

Last week the Student Council joined 
college officials in undertaking to help 
solve one of the major wartime problems 
here — the problem of getting more and 
better freshmen to come to Bowdoin. 
Through the columns of last week's 
Orient, the Council appealed to the 
alumni of the college to help. This appeal 
has been followed by an alumni drive 
started by the college for more students. 
The Council has assisted the Director of 
Admissions in securing from undergrad- 
uates information about prospective 
Bowdoin students. 

Thus far, we say, the Council is de- 
serving of praise in getting off to a fine 
start. And from here on the Council 
needs and should have more coordinated 
undergraduate support in an attempt to 
bring to the Director of Admissions the 
names of possible future Bowdoin men. 
The Council is trying to do this by 
means of a campaign which will include 
every student. Each student is being ask- 
ed to give to a Council member or to the 
Director of Admissions the name of one 
prospective freshman and any additional 
information that may be available. 

This is not asking much of each un- 
dergraduate but the matter should not 
be taken lightly. This is the best way to 
handle the matter. If it works, the results 
• should be revealing. It can work if the 
Council does its part in pushing the 
drive and i( the undergraduates will co- 
operate completely. The Council is 
working; now let every undergraduate 
cooperate and let's have names, names 
and more names. Let the students supply 
the names and the college and the Coun- 
cil will do the rest. Fraternity presidents 
have been asked to rally to the support of 
this cause. Let them assist Council 
members in pushing the campaign in 
their houses. They have a lot of influ- 
ence; let them use it now and let them 
keep using it for this worthy cause. 

Tq the 700 Bowdoin alumni who 
regularly subscribe to the Orient, 
let us say this: Here is your oppor- 
tunity to join hands with younger 
Bowdoin men of undergraduate 
standing and to work with them 
and college officials to "send our 
sons" and everybody's else's sons 
"to Bowdoin in the fall" and in 
June this year. To the alumni, 
whether you read the Orient for 
pleasure or whether you read ' it 
with more interest and with a 
critical eye as is manifested by your 
welcome communications, here is 
your chance to direct a bit of your 
energies into a really big cause, a 
cause that attracts the loyalty of 
all of you. Undergraduates have 
been told of the undying loyalty of 
Bowdoin grads and here is one oc- 
casion when they will be looking 
for manifestations of that loyalty 
and the old Bowdoin spirit. When 
you make your wartime contribu- 
tion to the Bowdoin Alumni Fund 
this month, enclose the name of a 
prospective freshman or two. This 
is one time when undergraduates 
will be expecting cooperation rather 
than criticism from many alumni. 

Like undergraduates, you want a 
large enrollment in the freshman 
class, football players and athletes, 
brilliant scholars, outstanding lead- 
ers. Well, do something about it 
and send names. And let the under- 
graduates do as much. 
The Ivy Day exercises on the terrace 
of the Walker Art Building last week 
marked what was probably the end of 
class distinctions at Bowdoin. There will 
no longer be the traditional separation 
and rivalry and spirit of '44 and '45 and 
even '46. Another tradition has felt the 
fire of war. In another year what would 
ordinarily be the junior class will be pre- 
paring for major examinations and grad- 
uation. Some of this year's freshmen will 
be sophomores and others of them will 
be juniors. Undergraduates will realize 
fully that they will be attending a war- 
time college. 

This past Ivy will probably be the last 
one which resembles anything of those of 
the past. Let it be long remembered. It 
was a successful and an orderly one — a 
fitting close temporarily to the glorious 
Bowdoin tradition of strong class distinc- 
tion and rivalry. 

We hope that Bowdoin has not seen 
its last houseparty for the duration. It 
does not seem unreasonable that some 
sort of social activity such as a dance one 
week end could be planned during the 
coming summer session. If the summer 
session goes through as now planned, 
with classes closing on Friday every 
week, many undergraduates will spend 
week ends much more unwisely than they 
would if a social event were held once 
during the session. 

At any rate, the passing of another 
Bowdoin tradition should make all mem- 
bers of the college stop and think. 


A few weeks ago in these editorial 
columns we criticized the failure of many 
Bowdoin athletes to adhere to training 
rules. There was plenty of basis for this 
criticism and there is more basis as time 
goes on. Many undergraduates have 
come to us asking that we speak out 
against the flagrant disregard of training 
rules by many athletes. Some athletes 
have asked us in what was supposedly 
good faith to refrain from speaking out 
and thus enable them to keep their public 
records clear. 

It has been only the desire to refrain 
from smirching the records and future 
possibilities of many undergraduate ath- 
letes that has prevented a second and 
more intensive condemnation of the utter 
disregard by many of any semblance of 
training rules. In past weeks, a trip to 
the town taverns would reveal faces that 
were last seen above Bowdoin athletic 
uniforms. When Bowdoin athletes, sup- 
posedly in training, are not gentlemen 
enough to remain sober while competing 
for the college, the time has come to call 
a halt. This is not the case with all ath- 
letes or with a majority of them but it is 
the case with too many of them. 

We are not exaggerating minor inci- 
dents. We are condemning a prevalent 
practice among too many. Either athletes 
can abide by reasonable training rules or 
they should have no objections to read- 
ing that their team is not completely in 
training. If the practice continues, the 
Orient will speak out — and the college 
officials should speak out. What is past 
is water over the dam and should be for- 
gotten but it should not be allowed to 
happen again unless the college wants to 
bear the blackeye. 

We have said before that these so- 
called athletes should abide by reasonable 
training rules or get off the teams. Those*, 
who stagger their way through college 
show a lack of will power and that is not 
the type of man who should wear a Bow- 
doin athletic uniform. Do they expect to 
stagger through life in the same way? Is 
this the proper spirit today when men are 
sacrificing their last breath for us? There 
were many guilty consciences and there 
was much criticism of the editorial when 
we first condemned the flagrant violation . 
of, training by the so-called athletes. 
There will be more now but let the of- 
fenders take heed before it is too late.

npHIS week we find ourself in ^ 
■!■ rather difficult position — that 
of trying to fill ten inches or so of 
this column following a memorable 
Ivy house party. Past history indi- 
cates that Sun Rises has almost al- 
ways been a vehicle for publicizing 
the opinions of the managing ed- 
itors concerning various controver- 
sial and serious problems of cur- 
rent interest. In this issue, how- 
ever, we shall take advantage of 
our poetic license (this is always 
an acceptable excuse for straying 
from any set pattern), and refrain 
from any argumentative writing. 

s - r 

IN the first place, after last week 
■*• end we find that we are com- 
pletely at peace with the world. 
Furthermore, even if there were 
something to criticize, considering 
our present state of mind, we 
doubt if we could convince anyone 
of the true seriousness of this 
theoretical problem. So, we shall 
carefully avoid any chance of be- 
coming pseudo-intellectual, and, in 
keeping with the new liberal policy 
of this weekly, we shall content 
ourselves with a bit of reminiscing 
about house parties. 

IlfE might start out by saying 
"* that it was probably one of 
the quietest but most enjoyable 
parties ever held. There seemed to 
be an abundance of conviviality 
along with an absolute minimum of 
unpleasant incidents. During the 
three-day interval someone told us 
a rather amusing story about a 
certain bartender. This crafty lad 
organized a group of scouts who 
operated all over campus and 
brought back information concern- 
ing any girls whese dates might 
have left them temporarily or for 
a longer period. Upon receipt of 
this information, the bartender 
would slip out of his white jacekt 
and dash off to see what could be 
dene to entertain the forsaken 
damsel. We trust he had a fair 
amount of success. 

ITmiDAY afternoon there was a 
W slight conflagration at the Psi 
U. house which caused a bit of ex- 
citement. As one of the firemen 
went to work on the shingles with 
an axe, the Psi U. brethren were 
heard chanting lustily: "Tear it 
down, tear it down." 

s - r 

rpHERE was a large crowd of 
* some forty fans in attendance 
at a softball game at the Chi Psi 
house Saturday morning about 6 
o'clock. The game is still under 
protest, however, for several ques- 
tionable decisions. "Heads up ball" 
was the watchword of the occa- 

a - r 

AND then there was the illustri- 
ous senior who passed the 
President's house about 2 o'clock 
one morning and discovered that 
the national flag was still flying. 
Being a patriotic citizen, he took 
it down and his date folded it up in 
true girl scout fashion. We hope 
that the flag has been returned by 
now. Perhaps it has, since there 
was no announcement of the af- 
fair in last Monday's chapel. 

s - r 

IT'S amazing how baffling and 
* complex these big railroad sta- 
tions can be. Looking back we 
can't quite figure out hew it hap- 
pened, but it seems that one of our 
charming guests from Bradford 
Junior College boarded a north- 
bound train with the impression 
thai she was heading back to Hav- 
erhill. She finally wound up in

To the Editor: • 

Many letters have been written 
in the pryf about the student's 

disappointing lack of enthusiasm 

over our concerts. It is easy to 
see how ineffectual thoy were by 
the conspicuous lack of students 
at the recent concert given by 
Professor Tillotson, and Robert 
Lauga. The night before, the 
Moulton Union lounge was crowd- 
ed with from eighty to one hun- 
dred people, all intensely en- 
grossed in the ministrations of Fa- 
ther Hines, Louis Armstrong, and 
other hep-cats swinging out riffs 
and hot licks in wild jam sessions. 
Yet at a concert of music that 
will live, music that is really- 
great, only a handful of students 
were in attendance. 

It seems, even if the students 
were not interested in the music 
being played, at least courtesy, 
and respect for Professor Tillot- 
son, a man we should be proud of 
and interested in. Would have de- 
manded their going to the concert 
that evening. A magnificent re- 
cital by a fine vioiinist, and an 
exemplary pianist was lost to nine- 
tenths of the college. 

Bowdoin has been called a col- 
lege of culture. Are we to be- 
lieve, from the indications of 
Thursday night, that this is 
wrong? Or is it possible that 
Bowdoin men do not believe good 
music cultural? A member of Phi 
Beta Kappa, supposedly well vers- 
ed in. and rightly appreciative of 
"the arts," one of the exponents 
of this elusive "Bowdoin Culture"' 
was seen on the same evening 
praising the jobs done by Paulette 
Goddard and Ray Milland in the 
current Cumberland show. — Or 
maybe this Is "Bowdoin Culture" ? 
We hope not.

The lounge lizards got a real 
surprise when they drifted into i 
their favorite hangout — the gym — J 
on Friday night. The "Victory" 
decorations were certainly not 
overdone and converted that den 
of torture into a paradise of sweet 
music and luxurious colors. It is 
interesting to note how our pro- 
fessional cynics' remarks about 
Les Hite's music compare with 
what they said an hour before the j

estimate how many dates gushed .

finally came the great migration 
began; making the rounds is very 
tiring but a lot of fun. Having' 
paid our admission , we went intp

oar ears taken off by a zoo ensem- ]

mainly of a nasal interpretation 
of the classics produced by Biscuit

from the other side of Bridgton — 
they admitted. 

It was a nice gesture for the 
Zotes to hire a band for the rest 
of the houses; Bob Percival comes 
from Portland you know. One or 
two Zetes tried to dance in the

spread the good word around so 
that in one minute flat everybody

This postlude, post mortem, aft- 
ermath, and review wouldn't be 
complete unless it mentioned how 
new friendships spring up sudden- 
ly and are developed in the jovial 
atmosphere of the Ivy weekend. 
The culmination of one of these 1 

friendships occurred in short or- |

engrossed in his new found friend, 
got stuck with a ride to Freeport

A tiny pin-hole in a telephone cable can adroit 
moisture, causing 9hort cirrnits and service inter-

beating this trouble to the punch. 

They charpe the cable with dry nitrogen under 
pressure. Then should a leak develop, the escaping 
gas keeps moiature out. Instruments on the cable 
detect the drop in pressure . . . sound an alarm at a 
nearby station., .indicate the approximate location 
of the break. A repair crew is quickly on its way. 

To maintain and improve America's all-important 
telephone service, men of the Bell System are con- 
stantly searching for the better way. Pioneering 
minds find real opportunity in telephone work. 


audience, and in most cases the ; 
audience seems to respond. At i 
least that would be the impression ' 
from the success with which this 
manner of presentation has been, 
received at Bowdoin. Because mo* e 
emphasis is placed on the imagina- 
tion of the audience; the audience 
always seems to respond with a 
greater interest and a more inti- 
mate contact with the action. Of 
course, a houseparty audience is 
usually in a good mood anyway, 
but the arena style did seem to 
have a considerable effect on mak- j 
ing the spectators feel that they 
had a greater part in what was 
happening on stage. 

In summary, we might say that 
the play was a very pleasing be- 
ginning to a delightful week end, 
and if the week end itself hadn't 
been so delightful perhaps we 
could summon up more energy to 
reviewing the play, but the week 
end is already a little hazy, so let's 
call the play a good Ivy play, and 
an excellent contribution to the to- 
tal success of this year's Ivy.

The Greatest Air Army in the World 


* New Deferred Service Plan Allows You to Continue Your Education * 

In the skies over America the might- 
iest air fleet in the history of the 
world is mobilizing for victory! 

So fast is it growing that there is a 
place here — an urgent need here — 
for every college man in America who 
can qualify for Officer's Training. 

The U. S. Army Air Force* need 
Flying Officers and Ground Crew I 
Officers. And many of them must 
come from the ranks of today's col- 
lege students — - men who make their • 
plans now /or the necessary Aviation 
Cadet training. 

Thanks to a newly created Air 
Force Reserve plan, men of all classes 
— aged 18 to 26, inclusive — can en- 
list for immediate service or continue 
the scholastic work required for . 
graduation before being called to 
active duty. 

You must meet the requirements 
for physical fitness, of course. In 
addition, you take a new simplified 
test to determine your ability to grasp 
the training. A college man should 
pass it easily. 


Those accepted who wish immediate 
duty will go into training as rapidly 
as facilities permit. As an Aviation 
Cadet, you are paid £75 a month, 
with subsistence, quarters, medical 
care, uniforms, equipment. 

In 8 months you can win an offi- 
cer's commission as a bombardier, 
navigator or pilot — and be well 
started on your way to serve America 
and advance yourself in aviation. 

Throe Enlistment Plans 
for College Men 

Juniors— Sophomores— Freshmen 
May Continue Their Education 

1. A new plan allows Juniors, 
Sophomores and Freshmen, aged 
18 to 26, inclusive, to enlist in the 
Air Force Enlisted Reserve and 
continue their schooling, pro- 
vided they maintain satisfactory 
scholastic standings. 

All College Men May Enlist 
- for Immediate Service 

2. All college students may enlist 
as privates in the Army Air Forces 
(unassigned) and serve there un- 
til their turns come for Aviation 
Cadet training. 

3. All college students may enlist 
in the Air Force Enlisted Reserve 
and wait until ordered to report 
for Aviation Cadet training. 

Upon graduation or withdrawal 
from college, men will be assigned 
to active duty at a training center 
as facilities become available. 

If the necessity of war demands, 
the deferred status in the Army 
Reserve may be terminated at any 
time by the Secretary of War.

Briggs drew a walk, Dolan dragged 
a bunt down the base line, beat-

Briggs and Dolan. Small then

Fresh from their victory over 
the University of Vermont, the Big 
White trackmen head for Boston 
this week, where they will tangle 
with Boston College on Saturday. 
Last week while Bowdoin was 
overpowering the Vermont boys, 
Boston College fell victim to a 
well-balanced University of Maine 
team. This is not as favorable as 
it might seem at the outset, how- 
ever, for in looking ahead these 
facts should be reckoned with. 
First, Bowdoin will not have the 
advantage in the weights she held 
at Vermont, and second, B.C. will 
have four or five extra-good men 
who were not available in the 
Maine meet because of an exam- 
ination period. 

Hillman, Carey, and the broad- 
jumpers give Bowdoin an edge in 
the distance runs and the broad- 
jump, but B.C., with such stand- 
outs as big Al Mooro, should make 
up for it in the shot and the discus. 
The hundred-yard dash is a toss- 
up between Matthews and Gree- 
han, but in the 220, Dickinson and 
Matthews should clean up. In the 
high hurdles. Strachan and Gree- 
han of B.C., both of whom are cap- 
able of sixteen seconds, will battle 
it out for first place. Kellehen,' the 
Massachusetts schoolboy champion 
won easily at Orono last week, and 
will thus be the favorite again on 
Saturday to take his specialty, the 
220-yard low hurdles. In the pole 
vault, Bunting of Bowdoin will at- 
tempt to out-soar the B.C. vaulter, 
who thus far this spring has failed 
to clear ten feet six inches. 

Jayvees To Open 
Against Deering 

Opening their campaign with 
the Deering encounter today, 
Coach Linn Wells' Jayvee baseball 
squad is entering upon a short 
intense schedule. Tomorrow South 
Portland is the opponent, the next 
day com^s Gardiner with Bridgton 
for May 6 and the climax with 
Hebron on May 8. 

Herb Babcock was the probable 
starter in the Deering tussle. To- 
morrow Chan Schmalz seems slat- 
ed to open hostilities while Gardi- 
ner will very likely see Lloyd 
Knight starting against them. 
Coach Wells also has Bob Shana- 
han and Mel Weiner in his pitch- 
ing repertoire. 

As they go into battle, a fairly 
clear pictuie can be given of posi- 
tions although Wells' feels that 
"some people have got to do a lit- 
tle more hustling if they want to 
hold their jobs." Behind the plate 
will be Walter Morgan with John 
Lally and Dick Gingras in reserve. 
At first is Stan Whiting with Jef- 
frey Power as understudy. Rivals 
around the second sack are John 
Curtis and Ralph Sulis. Tommie 
Huleatt has short securely nailed 
down. Linn has great confidence 
in Bob Frazer at third. 

The outfield finds Bob DeKalb 
in left, Waller (Not Walter) Fin- 
nagan at center, and Billy Talcott 
in right. Also available are Char- 
lie Kehlcnbach and Bill Maclntyre. 

The Jayvees, according to Coach 
Wells, have looked pretty good in 
practice and number among them 
some potentially very valuable ma-

newspaper story of some time ago. 
It tells of beating of a negro union 
organizer in the South. Paul han- 
dles the material well and doesn't 
fall into the use of polished adjec- 
tives which makes Pete Clark's 
"Corn in the Snow" rather sluggish 
in spots. The idea of the composite 
picture of Portland at war and the 
criticism was good. The plot 
brought out the idea all right, but 
his choice of words slowed me up. 
The ending was better and that's 
what made me realize- how slow 
the rest of the story had been, ex- 
cept for the verb-packed descrip- 
tion of the naval incident. Paul's 
story is the best one of the issue's 
four because he apparently worked 
on it longest. It shows a concise- 
ness of narrative that means care- 
ful revision. Crawford Thayer's 
•monologue is good up to the last 
paragraph and then I think the 
pace let down with a thump. Vance 
Bourjaily's "Jack and Jill" is the 
current number of his boy-meets- 
girl series and shows his usual 
adept ness with dialogue. 

I'm not familiar enough with the 
Odes of Horace to comment on the 
work of Doug Carmiehael although 
I do get a slight shock every time 
I come to that "... By Jove 
..." which reminds me of a Hol- 
lywood Englishman. 

The same applies to the first 
book review. I haven't read "The 
Moon Is Down" and so I can't ap- 
proach the review with enough 
knowledge to do it justice. 

Now for that book review of Bob 
Kennedy's. It was uncritical and 
unfair. About a book of photo- 
graphs nothing was said of the ex- 
cellent photography. Erskine Cald- 
well tried to present a kaleido- 
scope of American types and the 
pictures of average or familiar 
scenes. The essaies are supposed to 
present the catalogue description, 
trying to hit images and memories 
of the reader's. Mr. Kennedy was 




For Bowdoin, the first four men 
came through with wins in the 
singles matches, and the second 
double team of John Abbott and 
John Plimpton won a long match. 
Chick Ireland, the Maine Inter-

Pratt more easily than he did at 
any time last year, and Plimpton 
and Bill McClellan came through

Chipsies Retain 
Lead In Softball 

With the passing of the second 
week of Softball, the results have 
not changed a great deal. Many 
of the games have been postponed 
or forfeited, due to Ivy and other 
engagements on the college calen- 
dar. At the present time, the 
Chipsies are still In first place; 
the D. U.'s have dropped to third 
place, their game with the Dekes 
being postponed. 

The standing of the teams at 
present is as follows: Chi Psi, Sig- 
ma Nu. Delta Upsilon. Delta Kap- 
pa Epsilon, Zeta Psi. Psi Upsilon. 
Kappa Sigma, Theta . Delta Chi, 
Alpha Tau Omega, Thorndike, 
Alpha Delta Phi. 

During the last week, the Chi 
Psi's have won another from the 
A. T. O.'s by a forfeit, and the 
D. U.'s have played a protest game 
with the Dekes. The A. T. O.'s 
lost again to the Sigma Nu's while 
the Zetes eked out a 6-5 victory 
over the Dekes. All other sched- 
uled games have geen postponed 
until future dates.

wonder if he ever read it. You 
know the title of the book is not 
"So this is the U. S. A." but "Say, 
Is this the U. S. A." . 

Perhaps this last item is the 
most significant. Its sloppiness and 
obviously hurried writing is the 
main fault with undergraduate 
work. And students and faculty 
alike must remember the articles 
by Taylor and Johnson, the good 
short stories. There are slips which 
are forced into print by the paucity

One of the most amusing house- 
party incidents at Kappa Sigma 
concerns their new lawn. It seems 
as though a student from another 
house found it essential for his 
future happiness to take a short 
nap in the front yard. He thought 
also that it would be an awfully 
good idea to test the nutritive 
value of the grass seed which he 
found rubbing against his face. 
His hair is now turning green and 
he cuts it with garden shears. 

When this article was written 
the whistling season had started

You can serve your country best by 
acting on this new Navy Plan now! 

YOU WANT to fight for your 
country! Are you willing to 
work for it? To toughen yourself 
physically? To train yourself 
mentally for a real job in the 
United States Navy? If you are, 
* the Navy wants you to enlist now. 
You don't have to quit college. 
You can stay in college, continue 
your studies to prepare for active 
duty in the air or on the sea. 

And your college will help you 
do it! In cooperation with the 
Navy, it offers all freshmen and 
sophomores who are seventeen 
and not yet twenty, special train- 
ing thst may win for you the cov- 
eted Wings of Gold of a Naval 
Aviation Officer or a commission 
as a Deck or Engineering Officer. 

Hew te Become an Officer 
To get this special Navy training, 
you enlist now as an Apprentice 
Seaman. Then you may continue 
in college, but you will include 
special courses stressing physical 
development, mathematics and 
physics. After you successfully 
complete l'j calendar years in 
college, you will be given a classi- 
fication test. 

Aviation Officers 
If you qualify by this test, you 

may volunteer to become a Naval 
Aviation Officer. In this case, you 
will be permitted to finish the sec- 
ond calendar year of college work 
before you start your training to 
become a Flying Officer. 

However, at any time during 
this two-year period, you may 
have the option to take immedi- 
ately the prescribed examination 
for Aviation Officer. . .and, if suc- 
cessful, be assigned for Aviation 
training. Students who fail in 
their college courses or who with- 
draw from college will also have 
the privilege of taxing the Aviation 
examination. Applicants who fail 
to qualify in this test will be or- 
dered to active duty as Apprentice 

Deck er Engineering Officers 
Those who qualify in the classifi- 
cation test and do not volunteer 

for Aviation will be selected for 
training to be Deck or Engineer- 
ing Officers. In that case, you will 
continue your college program 
until you receive your bachelor's 
degree, provided you maintain the 
established university standards. 

Those whose grades are not high 
enough to qualify them for Deck 
or Engineering Officer training 
will be permitted to finish their 
second calendar year of college. 
After this, they will be ordered 
to duty as Apprentice Seamen, 
but because of their college train- 
ing, they will have a better chance 
for rapid advancement. At any 
time, if a student should fail in 
his college courses, he may be 
ordered to active duty as an. 
Apprentice Seaman. 

Pay starts with active duty. 

It's a real challenge! It's a real 
opportunity! Make every minute 
count by doing something about 
this new Navy plan today.

lots more we're too lazy to find

Just to get in the plug for na-

A rumor is circulating about 
the campus to the effect that the 
rushing system will be radically 
changed this spring. That is, the 
sub-freshmen will be given more 
chance to see all of the houses, re- 
placing the time-honored system cf 
"grab as many freshmen at the 
first possible moment, and stick 
pledge buttons on them." This is 
being considered in connection 
with the whole problem of fresh- 
man pledging. 

Be that as it may, the schedule 
for the Sub-Freshman Week End, 
Friday and Saturday, May eighth

same as it has traditionally been.

of the program, will present the

The annual athletic event will be

bution of the musical side of the 
college will be an informal concert

probably be given on the steps of 
the Walker Art Gallery, although

THE PAST WEEKEND was one not particularly devoted 
to sports of any kind, and probably no one was particularly 
thoughtful of them. As a result, we're definitely short of words

DONT BE TOO DISAPPOINTED in the baseball squad 
for losing a close game with Colby on Monday. However af- 
ter watching the eight and a half frames with the Mules, none 
of our faith is lost in the home team. After all, how many of 
you students could have played any baseball after Ivy week

ONE OF THE CHIEF FACTORS vitally concerning the 
5-4 defeat was the pile of sand in the center of the Colby dia- 
mond called a pitcher's box. At each pitch, Johnnie Williams' 
front foot ended up about eight inches lower than the back, 
consequently several men were given a "base on balls." Also a 
little lack of pep and several errors let the Mules keep the one- 
run lead. The scoring came in the first few innings for both 
teams, Brad Briggs, first man up, scored first for the Polar 
Bears and Jimmy Dolan followed him, thus scoring the first 
two runs in the first inning. In the second half of the first

HOWEVER BOWDOIN is more definitely on her way to 
laurels in baseball than a week ago. Within the last week, 
Maine won a game from Colby and Bates scored over Maine. 
By this simple method of deduction, it is evident that the Big 
White squad has the ability and the men to come out on top.

TUESDAY'S GAME with the University of Maine has, by 
the time you have read this, thrown additional light upon the 
matter. However anything said at the time of writing would 
be a mere prediction and, in respect to baseball, worthless. So 
let's do our own predicting. Nevertheless we hope and expect 
your hopes to be boosted to a new high as the team sees more 

Colby scored four runs but in the first of the fourth frame, 
Bowdoin tied the score by crossing home twice more. Then

Surprise Blackout Test Scheduled For Friday Night, May 8th 

Designed To Test Speed 
And Efficiency Of Wardens 

By Richard C. Brttton 

The first realistic, all-out blackout test of the Brunswick 
— Cundy's Harbor region, which is designed to test the actual 
war-time efficiency of all branches of the air raid defense or- 
ganizations, will be held on Friday evening sometime between 
7:00 o'clock and midnight. The exact time of the test will not 
be announced 'since the examinating committee are attempting 
to learn the speed With which town and campus wardens are 
able to carry out their duties effectively and without confu- 

When the 5-5-5 blasts of the 
fire siren sound, all air raid war- 
dens and units of the fire and po- 
lice departments will report im- 
mediately to their respective posts. 
All light on the campus will be 
shut off by the master switch as 
soon as it is assumed that all war- 
dens, previously instructed in their 
duties by Campus Post Warden 
Prof. Thomas C. Van Cleve and 
Deputy Pos^ Wardens Professors 
Cecil T. Holmes and Athem P. 
Daggett, are at their posts. There- 
fore, it is obvious U?at_l mem *

On the campus, ml students not 

serving official duty will remain 
in whatever building they may be 
at the time the alert signal is 
given. In the dormitories student 
wardens will keep all men on the 
first and second floor corridors 
and subdue any unnecessary noisy 
demonstrations or use of flash- 
lights or matches. Blinds will be 
drawn over the windows at each 
end of the dorms and incindiary

equipped with a supply of sand

Senior Reveals Hopes And 
Fears Of Pre-Exam Period 

By Richard K. Bye 

The other day I was taking a sun bath out on the front 
porch when someone called me to answer the phone. I made 
the observation then that it was the first phone call I had re- 
ceived since the middle of March. Naturally, I was pretty ex- 
cited. It turned out to be Doug Carmichael, of the Orient 
staff, who wanted me to write a little feature article on how it 
feels to be a senior facing majors. "Be facetious," he said. I 
agreed to do it, then went back to my sun bath. But on the 
way I stopped by my Funk and Wagnall's Comprehensive 
Standard Dictionary to find out what "facetious" means. I 
realized then that I never should have taken the assignment. 
If he'd said "be mature" or "be sedate" or "be serious, for a 
change" I probably could have filled the bill. However, if 
there is one thing that seniors facing majors do not feel, it is 
like being facetious. 

Doug's further bad taste in se- 
lecting me for the job will be 
clear to any reader who wants to 
take the bother to look in this 
year's catalogue. I have been en- 
tered for the last three year's as 
a member of the class of '44, and 
only became a senior at mid- 
year's of this year. Even then my 
seniority is not full fledged since 
I have not had the cumulative 
background of first being a Fresh- 
man then a sophomore and then 
a junior, etc. ... I don't think I 

was ever officially a Junior. 

Having disposed of "how it feels 
to be a senior" I will go on to the 
second part of the Request . . . 
"facing majors." They are mak- 
ing me take them even though I 
am only half a senior and have 
never been a Junior, so I feel 
qualified to tell you how it feels. 
It feels terrible. It's like an epi- 
demic that has gripped the whole 
class. The symptoms vary but lit- 
tle in individual cases. First there

Benefits U.S.O. 
Friday Night 

The Ivy play "The Milky Way" 
will be repeated this coming week- 
end as part of the extensive pro- 
gram being arranged for the sub- 
freshmen. The performance will 
be held Friday night at 8.15 in the 
cage, and will utilize the arena 
style as was the case at Ivy. The 
gate receipts will go to the U. S. 
O. This benefit will initiate the 
local Brunswick drive for funds. 
Students presenting their blanket 
tax cards will be admitted free 
of charge as will subfreshmen and 
service men in uniform. All others 
attending the performance must 
pay admission. 

The play will stop during the 
blackout which is another feature 
of the week-end. This dusky inter- 
mission is expected to heighten 
the suspense in much the same 
manner as a serial radio pro-

Many Opportunities 
For Summer Work 

Reporter Digs Up Phi Chi's 
History From 1864 To 1942 

By Richard Hornberger 

It is possible that the song Phi Chi is better known by 
Bowdoin undergraduates, particularly the freshmen, than al- 
most any other college song. The reason for this is, of course, 
that at one time or another everyone around here was a fresh- 
man and was forbidden to sing it. Most of the students, how- 
ever, have little more than the hazy idea that Phi Chi was 
some sort of a glorified S.C.D.C., and that's all they know 
about it, so we'll try to clear the question up a bit. 

Summer jobs will be available 
for many Bowdoin undergraduates 
in this community either part-time 
or full-time and for those who are 
coming as well as those who are 
not coming to the summer ses- 
sion, according to Donovan D. 
Lancaster, Director of Student 
Aid. He urges those seeking work 
to register with him immediately. 

In co-operation with the Bruns- 
wick Chamber of Commerce Mr. 
Lancaster's office has been made 
an employment center for the 
summer. Due to the war's ab- 
sorbtion of manpower there is a 
particularly wide number of open- 
ings at this time. The Moulton 
Union bulletin board will be turn- 
ed over to notices of such oppor- 
tunities as they arise. 

Those who have work applica- 
tions in Mr. Lancaster's hands are 
urged to come in and signify their 
desire f or employment, at the 
same time checking to see that 
they have completely filled out the 
"Experience" column. Those who 
have not made such applications 
should do so. 

Mr. I^iticaster emphasized that 
all summer jobs will be open 
equally to all students including 
the incoming Class of 1946. The 
campus work program will func- 
tion much as usual, $1,500 having 
been provided from the general 
funds of the college for a special 
work program. 

Dean Nixon Talks On 
College Individuality 

Phi Chi, as the song relates, was 
founded in 1864, on May 10. with. 
according to Hatch's "The History 
of Bowdoin," the purpose of violat- 
ing school rules. The principal 
function of the Phi Chi of old was 
to reduce freshmen to fear-strick- 
en, palpitating nervous wrecks, but 
its activities did not end here. In 
fact, as far as we've been able to 
determine. Phi Chi stopped at 
nothing, and Chief Quelle tte may 
be thankful that he's not the town 
cop of the 1860*8. For when Phi 
Chi's glorious sinners were on the 
prowl there was nothing sacred. 
For instance, the circus hit Bruns- 
wick one week, equipped with an 
enormous, enticing billboard, with 
• picture of something resembling 

Humpty Dumpty on it. The society 
resolved that "due sway could not 
be given to the deep and attractive 
influence of Aristotle while this 
thing of the body (in opposition to 
mind) stood 1 in such close proximity 
to classic ground"; so they tore it 
down. Instructions given to the 
warriors before they made their 
sally on the sign were: "If police- 
men appear and are obstreperous-, 
hang together and resist" 

Perhaps the crowning achieve- 
ment of Phi Chi was the borrow- 
ing, on a lend-lease basis, of the 
bust of President Cheney of Bates. 
Unfortunately the information on 
this is too well hidden to be easily 

found, but we suspect that last 

[ Con fmncd on Page 2 ] 

In his weekly chapel talk on 
Saturday, May 2, Dean Nixon 
spoke on the standardization and 
individuality in American colleges 

Quoting former Secretary of the 
Treasury Andrew F. Mellon, he 
said, "Same clothes, same thoughts, 
same everything. I hope to God 
the colleges will put some individ- 
uality into American citizens." 

One of the high points of the ad- 
dress was the idea that individual- 
ity does not mean that a student 
must manifest eccentricities, such 
as intellectual cockiness, over-, 
spontaneity, etc. Such traits, the 
Dean said, are certainly under- 
mined by a college education. 

The only really wholesome type 
of standardization is that of high 
standards. "The really important 
issue is not whether we standard- 
ize, but what we standardize." 

Dean Nixon pointed out that 
each Bowdoin man is an individ- 
ual, and that what we do with our- 
selves is largely within our own 
power. It is up to us whether we 
shall choose to become "children 
of the dust or sons of God."

Faculty Honors President At Dinner 

Sills Completes First 
25 Years In Office 

Last Friday evening the faculty 
gave a testimonial dinner in the 
lounge of the Moulton Union in 
honor of President Sills, on the 
occasion of his twenty-fifth anni- 
versary as President of Bowdoin; 
Dean Nixon acted as toastmaster, 
and Professor Charles T. Burnett 
was speaker for the faculty. 

Before the dinner began, a num- 
ber of the student body, grouped 
outside the Union, greeted the 
President with songs and cheer- 
ing, which he acknowledged by 
Coming out onto the steps and ad- 
dressing the gathering briefly. 

Deeply appreciative of the ova- 
tion, President Sills expressed the 
hope that after the present war 

is over there will be many other 
such merry gatherings. He also 
expressed the hope that he would 
not be counted "the President 
from war to war." Several times 
he was interrupted by the en- 
thusiastiealy spontaneous cheer- 
ing of the throng. 

Many letters, from former fa- 
culty members and representa- 
tives of the Board of Trustees 
and Overseers, were read, and 
after President Sills' response, 
Professor Emeritus Wilmot B. 
Mitchell, on behalf of the faculty 
J wives, presented Mrs. Sills with a

the reading of a poem composed

Because tills week's issue of

men, we are omitting our regular

Incoming Frosh 
Will Have Rules 

Bowdoin Welcomes Sub-Freshmen 
To A College Of Opportunity 

This week Bowdoin welcomes 75 boys who will visit the 
college Friday and Saturday for the annual Sub-Freshman 
Week End. We extend a warm hand of welcome to the young 
guests who will come from high schools and preparatory 
schools throughout the East to visit a wartime college here. 
The sub-freshmen will be here to seek an impression of Bow- 
doin. That impression will be determined by what they see 
here. Every effort is being.made to insure the sub-freshmen a 
profitable and an enjoyable week end. The program is head- 
lined by a glee club concert and a Masque and Gown play on 
Friday, the state track meet on Saturday, interviews with the 
Director of Admissions following an assembly of all sub- 
freshmen Saturday morning, visits to classes and above all a 
chance to see a college life and fraternity life and a life of op- 
portunity at Bowdoin. 

The fraternities will help the college in showing the boys 
a good time. Naturally the houses will be anxious to pledge 
promising boys but sub-freshmen should not allow themselves 
to be hurried into pledging to any fraternity blindly. It is a 
good policy for sub-freshmen to see as many fraternities as 
possible and to observe as much of the college as they can. 
That is the purpose of this week-end program. 

President Sills has said that the aim of the college is to 
offer opportunities and Bowdoin certainly has much to offer to 
the sub-freshmen. There are a few important facts which 
every sub-freshman should know about the opportunities open 
to him at Bowdoin: * 

1. One of the outstanding small colleges in this country, 
Bowdoin has long been considered one of the leaders in 
the field of education, boasting a faculty of experts and 
thousands of alumni who have made brilliant records in 
many different fields of endeavor. 

2. Bowdoin has quickly and effectively adjusted its curri- 
culum to the needs of the hour and has one of the best 
wartime programs in the intercollegiate world. The ac- 
celerated curriculum with shortened and intensified semes- 
ters and a summer session promises to work out very 
profitably for all. 

The college offers primary and secondary instruction in 
civilian pilot training as well as deferred enlistment plans 
for the navy, marines and the army air corps. A program 
of compulsory calisthenics for all students will enhance 
the chances of Bowdoin men to secure commissions when 
they enter the service. 

3. The regular extra-curricular and athletic activities here 
are continuing on an extensive scale. 

4. This year the college awarded more than $30,000 in schol- 
arships to needy students. Last week the college an- 
nounced the award of an $9,500 in scholarships to needy 
students coming to the summer session. Some 200 or 300 
undergraduates are engaged in some type of work at the 
college or in the town at various times during the year, 
thus being able to pay part of their college expenses. 
Each year the college awards about $7,000 in medical 
scholarships to Bowdoin graduates in medical schools 
throughout the country. There are other graduate schol- 
arships as well as exceptional opportunities offered every 
year to capable Bowdoin seniors. 

5. A strong and influential host of Bowdoin alumni watches 
the progress of undergraduates, assists them financially 
through contributions to the Alumni Fund, and helps to 
place them upon graduation. 

With these words of greeting and information we welcome 
the future Bowdoin men to their campus and ours this week 

According to James D. Dolan, 
Jr., '43, newly elected president of 
the Student Council, freshman 
rules will continue this summer 
and next fall as in other years 
with the only changes involving 
the extent of fraternity hazing. As 
has been stated previously, any 
house violating the new rules, 
which permit the freshmen to 
have more time to themselves to 
keep up with the accelerated pro- 
gram of study, will forfeit house 
party privileges for that semester. 

It must be made clear, said 
Dolan, that freshmen entering the 
college this summer are a class 
ahead of those who enter in the fall 
and will be subject to freshmen 
rules only for the summer ses- 
sion. Rules will begin for" them 
the first week they are here and 
will last until the last week of the 
second semester of the summer 
session. Men entering in the fall 
will be burdened with the rules 
from their first week on campus 
until a date which may be de- 
cided upon in much the same way 
as it was last year. The new 
S. C. D. C. will be elected during 
the first week of the summer ses- 
sion and will serve till the begin- 
ning of the summer session the 
following year. 

The tradition of "Proc Night" 
will be staunchly continued with a 
session during the summer school 
and another in the fall. It was de- 
cided that incoming freshmen 
should not be deprived of any of 
Bowdoin's traditions and certain- 
ly not "Proc Night." 

It has appeared previously in 
the ORIENT that fraternities vio- 
lating the rushing rules by over- 
running their quota of six pledges 
until this fall will lose houseparty 
privileges for the semester. Such 
punishment was to be adminis- 
tered by the Student % Council. 
However, this situation has been 
reconsidered by the president of 
the college and punishment will 
be dealt by the quota committee 
instead. The same penalty of loss 
of houseparty privileges is still 
possible nevertheless. 

Extensive Program Planned 
To Entertain Potential '46 

By Philip H. Hoffman 

As the college prepared a gala reception for some sev- 
enty-five sub-freshmen who will descend on campus for the 
annual Sub-Freshman Week End this Friday and Saturday, 
Dr. Edward S. Hammond, Director of Admissions, issued a 
statement outlining Bowdoin's offer to the Class of 1946 in a 
war-torn world. 

Scholarship Aid 
Figure Released 

Friday, Bowdoin College an- 
nounced the award of $9,500 in 
scholarships to assist students at- 
tending the summer session of the 
College. This sum has been award- 
ed to 90 students already in 
school. Awards will also be made 
to outstanding incoming freshmen 
from the State of Maine scholar- 
ships, the Bowdoin Fund, and the 
Johnson Fund. 

When the announcement was 
first made that Bowdoin would re- 
main open all year for the dura- 
tion of the war, President Sills 
said that scholarships would be

Final Program To 
Feature Dr. Gross 

The next, and last, program of 
"Bowdoin on the Air" for the cur- 
rent year will be broadcast over 
Station WGAN, Portland, tomor- 
row night at 6.00 p.m., as usual. 
Dr. Gross will give a short talk 
about Kent Island, the Bowdoin 
Scientific Station. Several under- 
graduates will also speak, among 
whom will be Charles Bowers, '42, 
William Loring, '43. H. B. Taylor, 
'43, and Ivan Spear, '44, all of 
whom stayed at Kent Island last 
summer, conducting experiments 
and making observations. 

Kent Island is maintained as a 
scientific station for special lab- 
oratory and field investigations. 
The island, at the entrance of the 
Bay of Fundy, covers an area of 
about one thousand acres, and 
was donated to the college by 
John Sterling Rockefeller. 

The island is equipped for prac- 
tical field training in Ornithology, 
Marine Zoology, Botany, Geology, 
and Meteorology. Among its fa- 
cilities are a forty-foot cruiser for 
scientific research and a two-story 
domitory, providing living quar- 
ters for the annual summer ex- 

The program last week, which 
was to consist of songs by the 
Meddiebempsters, had to be can- 
celled at the last moment because 
of misunderstandings with ASCAP.

Dr. Hammond's message to the 
Class of 1946 follows: 

"Not for a quarter of a century 
has an entering class at Bowdoin 
found the nation at war, found the 
college so directly concerned with 
the problems of a nation fighting 
bitterly on every front for its 
ideals. Never before has a class 
come to Bowdoin when so large a 
proportion of the nation's power, 
both military and economic and in- 
dustrial, is bent to one end. 

"These facts have a tremendous 
influence on your aims in starting 
your college work. The provisions 
of the Selective Service Act force 
into the center of your attention 
the value of your college work in 
enhancing your effectiveness in na- 
tional service. Your central aim 
must be to develop what talents 
you have as completely as possible 
and as rapidly as possible for the 
good of the United States of 

"Bowdoin has much to offer you. 
Perhaps its greatest service is the 
allround training and intellectual 
development you can gain here. In 
the •all-out' national effort called 
for by warfare in this year 1942. 
brains trained in all ways are call- 
ed for as never before. Problems 
for solution arise in every field of 
national life and the study of these 
problems is a vital part of the col-

Governor Sewall 
Chapel Speaker 

Last Sunday' afternoon Gover- 
nor Sumner Sewall of Maine gave 
an address in chapel concerning 
the present and future of this 
generation, and of America, char- 
acterizing his talk as "thinking- 

"This is a fast changing world. 
The war is hitting everything 
hard, the national economy, busi- 
ness, the home, and the hearts of 
the people; it won't be long before 
some of you go to the services." 
He said that people who have 
been through the last war are 
wondering what their boys will 
encounter in this one; and, with 
this in mind mentioned a few of 
his remembrances of the last war, 
all of them, he pointed out, little 
things, "and I can see the same 
for these boys. But very plainly, 
without a shred of a doubt, I can 
see the same ending." 

However, like the lessons of the 
last war, the Governor said that 
after this war it can happen that 
we will not remember the things 
learned in war. Service men are 
learning many things, discipline, 
and human consideration for 
others less fortunate than them- 

"This war may be the end of 
something that hasn't been very 
good, and the beginning of some- 
thing better. To win the war, in 
a military aspect is not enough. 
We must win all the time, and 
keep the peace that we have won. 
Lessons once learned must stay 
with us." 

In the world after the war. 
"there is going to be more of 
man .less of money: less of the 
profit motive and more of the 
human motive. We are going to 
pay more attention to health, the 
very base of preserving our race 
and our dignity. — This is going to 
he a more democratic world. You 
must attend infinitely more of 
ruling yourselves, for if you don't 
someone else will."

One of the most sincere student dem- 
onstrations in Bowdoin history took 
place last Friday evening. Two hundred 
undergraduates staged a rally outside the 
Moulton Union to sing and cheer in 
honor of President Sills who was being 
tendered a testimonial banquet by fac- 
ulty members in the Union Lounge on 
the occasion of the 25 th anniversary of 
his becoming head of the college. Rich- 
ard G. Warren '44 deserves the credit 
for sounding the timely bugle call for the 
rally — the student response was most en- 

The singing of "Rise Sons of Bow- 
doin," written by the President, and the 
prolonged shouts of "We Want Casey" 
certainly were enheartening in these 
times. The entire affair gave a big lift 
to the morale of all members of the col- 

Undergraduates, like alumni and 
friends of the college and the general 
pubiicj realize more and more each day 
the splendid job President Sills is doing 
for Bowdoin and they all agree, "We 
Want Casey." 


The Orient has not hesitated to 
praise those who have performed com- 
mendable action for the college; and we 
do not hesitate to offer constructive 
criticism in pointing out shortcomings 
which are harmful to the College. Today 
we are asking that a bad situation be 

These past few years the alumni office 
has been handling the publicity work of 
the College and handling it well. Today, 
it is especially important that the Col- 
lege have wise and active management of 
publicity and public relations to inform 
friends of Bowdoin as well as the public 
and prospective freshmen of the stability 
of the College, its progress, its wartime 
activities, its future plans and the oppor- 
tunities Bowdoin offers to prospective 

The new student-directed publicity 
branch which handles personal under- 
graduate news on a small scale through 
contacts with home-town newspapers is 
{icing a fine job. But the handling of ma- 
jor news releases has been so disregarded 
that today there are practically no re- 
leases coming from the alumni office. 

There is more going on here now than 
ever before; interest in a wartime college 
is at pitch high; but the College through 
its alumni office is going backward on 
this front by failing to keep the public in- 
formed. The alumni office is doing virtu- 
ally nothing to release news. Reporters 
enter the office seeking news and leave 
Convinced that very little is known there 
about what is taking place on the Bow- 
doin campus. With Commencement less 
than a month away, it is time that we 
call attention to this situation in order 
that this wartime graduation may receive 
its due share of public attention. A lit- 
tle more attention to the handling of 
news releases would improve the impres- 
sion made by the College in the eyes of 
the reading public. 

By Bob Edwards 

The combination of warm days, soft-ball and 
preparation for final exams doesn't seom to be mix- 
ing too smoothly from all appearances. 

Nevertheless, the phenomenon of green grass and 
birds in Brunswick certainly deserves as much at- 
tention as the theory of marginal revenue or the 
nineteenth declension of avoir. At any rate, the open 
air "Study" groups have increased three hundred 
per cent during the last week, and it would seem 
that a session with nature is generally accepted as 
the only way to pass exams. At least it's a lot of fun.

Have you signed up for E-15 yet? This Is the 
branch of the Basket Weaver's Association 
which guarantees its members that they may be 
sure of attaining the rank of Chief Pooh Bah 
after fou r t een years of se r vi c e, Se r io u sly, 
though, Bowdoin seems to be extremely 
commission conscious, and if all plans are car- 
ried through, the college will become little less 
than a military academy. Instead of being 
known as a member of the class of 1966, an in- 
dividual will be recognised aa an embryo deck I 
officer or an assistant meteorologist. 

The college is being taken over by hoards of sub- 
frosh this week end, and we bet that some wild 
stories will be told. Typical tales may well include 
the news that the green house behind the T.D. 
mansion is being remodeled as an annex; Pickard 
Field is under the direct supervision of the Zetes; 
the A.T.O.'s have contracted to have a private R.R. 
station built on their southern slope; B.H.S. is being 
reorganized as the official preparatory school for 
Beta Theta Pi. Tejl them anything— sell them the 
Swimming Pool — only make sure, that they come to 

m - c 

For some time now the "greatest need of the 
college" has been an indoor hockey rink, a Little 
Theatre, more scholarships, etc. After due and 
deliberate consideration of the matter, though, 
we have decided that none of these deserve any 
more consideration than our proposal. We feel 
that the primary need of the college is a new 
pencil sharpener in the library! Careful investi- 
gation has revealed that the present antique is 
only thirty-five per cent efficient, that nerves 
are shattered beyond repair by the actions of 
this monstrosity, that a five cent pencil doesn't 
stand a chance in it. May the President of the 
Board of Trustees hear our plea and investigate 
the possibilities of a suitable appropriation. We 
need a pencil sharpener! 




By Don Sears 

THE OTHER EVENING we had the pleasure of 
listening to the Honorable Sumner Sewall, Gover- 
nor of the State of Maine, express his faith in the 
dawning of a better world after the war is over and 
done. Such words of courage and hope cannot be 
taken as other than sincere coming as they did 
from a man who fought through World War I, re- 
ceiving distinguished service awards from several 
countries. Gov. Sewall knows war and the after- 
effects of war. But he perhaps doesn't realize the 
scepticism that colors our thinking today. We would 
like to believe in the pretty picture of a wonderful 
world after the storm clouds are passed, but we can- 

* - r 

IN HIS "THINKING-OUT-LiOUD," the Governor 
stated, "There will be more of Man and less of 
Money in this new world." We wish we could accept 
this escape thinking. Facts will not let us. Disillu- 
sionment has come too often, and we do not intend 
to give it room again. ■ , 

s - r 

FROM THE CRADLE upward we have been trained 
to think of war as a dead and outmoded evil. Peace 
and democracy! These have been the watchword of 
our generation, and overnight we have had to see 
them swept aside. Nineteen-eighteen said, "The 
world will be safe for democracy." Today we are 
again preserving democracy, but we want no glori- 
ous phrases and escape talks of Utopias to come. 
The only heartening feature of this war that dif- 
fers from any other is that today we are not afraid 
of facing the rottenness of the world. Patriotism is 
a quiet, calm affair today; not a rah-rah flag-waving 
that dulls thinking. 

s - r 
wortJr fighting for!" Yes, we agree with you there 
Governor Sewall, but we don't dare admit idealism 
even to ourselves. This war we want to fight with a 
sullen, collected anger. We want ideals kept at a 
minimum. That way it will hurt less to see them 
shattered. We can get along without day-dreaming 
and intend to. After the world begins to straighten 
out again we can afford to dream once more. 

• - r 

MR. SEWALL PROFESSED, "Faith carries us on 
and will see us through." Faith can do that for the 
older generations, but for the youth of today faith 
is an almost unknown quantity. A blind adherence 
to the utter reality of our slightly warped world 
holds us together. We have no part of faith; since 
we have seen our faith in brotherly love, in equal op- 
portunity, in world peace— each slowly torn to 
pieces. Faith and idealism — day-dreaming and wish- 
ful-thinking— we want none of them, for they help 
us not at all, and they can hurt us infinitely. 

s - r 
IN CLOSING the Governor stated, "I envy you." 
Perhaps he rightly envies. We need no faith, few 
dreams. As long as there is life that we can face 
realistically , unimaginatively, if you will, we will 
carry on. The Utopian future may come, it may not 
come. Tomorrow will see that. Today there is a job 
to be done. 


To the Editor: 

In the ORIENT'S fine Communication Corner, 
the reader often runs into some very choice gems. 
Gripes from Alumni, gripes from freshmen about 
the SCDC, gripes from everyone who hasn't any- 
thing to say and doesn't know how to say it are the 
rules rather than the exception. I think that Ferrini 
and Lavitt had something very definite to say last 
week but nevertheless their little billet doux was 
a veritable morass of mistaken terminology and im- 
pressions of the jazz art and so we Jazzmen are of- 
fended. In the first place LoUis and the Earl aren't 
"hepcatt" swinging out riffs and hotlicks— you're 
adulterizing real jazz with the commercial Shaw- 
James-Miller brand there, sirs, and we don't like it. 
In the second place Culture as far as music is con- 
cerned is a matter of personal taste. To us jazz is 
as much art as symphony. If Jazz is a vital enough 
form to attract eighty of its fans away from their 
studies while only a handful attends a subsequent 
classical concert then the trouble is with the sym- 
phonic fans not with us jazzmen. And we don't care 
who is seen appraising Paulette Goddard. 
Sinoereiy yours,

thorized are the dim lanterns on

Meanwhile, every slip up in re- 
gard to casual lights, inefficient 
handling of equipment, and un- 
called-for antics -will be observed 
and wjll count agaiast a one hun- 
dred per cent effective blackout 
which is the aim of all persons

not definitely decided upon, how- 

It- is estimated that the black- 
out, from beginning to end, will 
last about fifteen or twenty 
minutes, or long enough for each 
warden to fulfill his job and make 
a report to his superior. In this 
short interval of time the ab- 
solute cooperation of the entire 
student body is essential if the 
work of many weeks is to prove 
a success. No open violation of 
the previously published air raid 
rules will be tolerated. The prac- 
tice alert held last Saturday 
showed that campus wardens re- 
spond to the call and that the 
campus test was otherwise satis- 

Your fellow students who are 
raid wardens have been trained, 
through practice and lecture, said 
professor Van Cleve, to do what, 
is necessary in case of an actual 
raid; to make this test on Fri- 
day evening, which might be the 
real McCoy in the near future, 
really effective they must have 
your help and cooperation. Not 
until the all clear sounds— 2-2-2 — 
should any student neglect his 
personal duty of doing what his 
warden tells him and permit the 
use of any casual lights. 

is the incubation period or the era 
of good intentions. This Usually 
lasts until Tuesday of the reading 
period and is characterized by al- 
ternate periods of distress and 
elation. Books, papers', notes, 
hour exams and good intentions 
are placed in order. About the 
third day the victim is struck 
with an impression of the short- 
ness of time, and consequently 
puts in a day of intense study. 
This is followed by a reaction. He 
feels that he needs a little re- 
laxation to get the most out of 
his hours of concentration, but he 
usually washes more time than he 
intended to, with the consequence 
that he resorts the next day to 
outlines and hasty perusals in- 
stead offreading the texts right 

through. Then the real distress 
begins. -There are only two days 
left and he still has two courses 

to cover. Already he is beginning 

to forget the material that he has 
covered perviously. During all 
these days he has talked himsell 
into going to lied early and get- 
ting up late in order to be re- 
laxed and in good health for the 
examinations. However, this rule 
finally has to be ignored as time 
groWs short. The last two nights 
are filled with feverish horror. 
Seniors in \anous fields gather in 
groups and ask questions caus- 
ing some to grow pale and others 
to look satisfied as answers are 

Throughout all this there is an 
observable attitude of trying to 
put the best foot forward. Each 
senior tries to make every other 
senior feel that he Is not worried. 
He tries to give the impression 
that he knows the material and 
has only to review it systematical- 
ly. Wh'n he encounters a member 
of the faculty who will face him 
on Monday and Tuesday he tries 
to evoke a sympathetic response 
and at the same time impress 
him with the idea that he has 
not wasted the last four years. 

He also tries to ascertain by the 
changes of expression on the in- 
structors face just what questions 
will be asked. This usually serves 
only to confound the poor senior, 
because the faculty were wise to 
his little game, and are out to get 
him regardless. (Professors deny 
this). These devils even hire lieu- 
tenants to lure more promising 
students to their destruction. I 
know this because my roommate 
fell the victim of one of ihem. 
Dinny Shay called Chick Ireland 

fall's painting of the Polar Bear 
was an act of retaliation for the 
ancient misdeed. It's probably 
been rankling in the hearts of 
Bates men for the last 80 years. 

When Phi Chi went in for hazing 
it carried out its mission with 
deadly thoroughness and with mal- 
ice towards all. Two rooms at the 
north end of Winthrop, appropri- 
ately decorated for the festive oc- 
casion, were used by Phi Chi when 
it tried offending freshmen. The 
victims were not simply lead up 
the steps to the society's sanctum, 
but instead were dragged over the 
rcof and admitted through a trap 
door, or were hoisted aloft by a 
block and tackle. Personally we've 
been hoisted on very few blocks 
and tackles or whatever the plural 
is, but it seems likely that the cul- 
prit was usually ready to quit be- 
fore the fun really began. The Phi 
Chi court was organized in usual 
legal fashion. No verdicts of ac- 
quittal were ever rendered, but to 
show its broadmindedness and lack 
of prejudice the society always 
supplied counsel for the accused. 
The duty of the lawyer was to beg 
mitigation of sentence for the de- 
fendent. There seems to be no 
record of the actual Phi Chi initia- 
tions and punishments, except that 
they were rough and were never 
held in the same place twice. This 

was designed to keep the kids 

guessing and without a doubt it 
did. In the period of its existence, 
Phi Chi must have had to go quite 
far afield to find a different place 
lor each initiation. 

Some members of Phi Chi, de- 
spite the erring ways of their col- 
lege days, seem to have been men 
of substance, although what this 
proves we don't know. At any rate 
there blcssomed forth from the 
ranks of Phi Chi a Foreign Minis- 
ter to Hawaii, in the person of F. 
M. Hatch. Mr. Hatch, inhabiting 
the islands in the days before 
Pearl Harbor was to be remem- 
bered, probably tried Phi Chi tac- 
tics on the native diplomats. Arno 
Wiswell, a Chief Justice of the 
State of Maine, was also a mem- 
ber of Phi Chi. 

Like all societies of its kind, the 
Klu Klux Klan of Bowdoin finally 
met its end in the way that such 
organizations usually do. Accord- 
ing, to the history of Bowdoin, "a 
neophyte, while being projected 
down a slide, struck his head with 
nearly fatal results." They prob- 
ably flipped him out a window. 

up and tempted him into going on 
a tennis trip by saying "Holy 
Crimers . . . after four years you 
ought to know that stuff"! 

If you think I haven't been very 
facetious in writing this article 
come and see mo after majors are 

P.S. On the way over to the 
ORIENT office Sunday night be- 
fore my written exam 1 met John 
Stanley who greeted me with "Hi 
Dick! what's on vour mind?" 

This was the final blow to Phi Chi 
and in 1882 it was disbanded, leav- 
ing nothing to posterity and fresh- 
men but a song, sung to the tune 
"Marching Through Georgia," and 
a whole slew of frightening mem- 
dries. Since then there have been ( 

other societies, such as The White 
Owls and the Vigilantes, modelled 
along similar lines, but these or- 
ganizations quickly died out. At 
present, of course, there is the S.

polar bearings Big White Has Good Chance In State Meet Saturday 

By Eh Ellin 

This being the last issue of the ORIENT for the current semester, 
this article must necessarily be one of predictions rather than facts, for 
the summation of the Spring athletic schedule will come after the 
paper goes to press. Looking into the future and the summer months, 
it is nearly impossible to say to what degree athletic activities can 
be carried out. However, the college will encourage participation in 
sports as much as possible; the only question arising as to what amount 
of time a student can devote to athletics. If all goes well, there should 
be plenty of activity on the links, courts, and diamond; and, as athletics 
are an accepted part of college routine, it will be a very dull spot with- 
out them. 

polar bearings 
At a recent meeting ot the swimming team for the pur- 
pose e»f having the team picture taken, Alec Penny '44 was 
elected captain for the next swimming season. Whether that 
wttl he during the s umm e r or next winter is a question for 
anyone to solve. At any rate It is probable that individual 
swimming, if not team meets, will he a part of the summer 
schedule to be sponsored by the college. 

polar bearings 
Most prominent among the Spring athletic teams probably is the 
baseball squad which has been surprisingly successful in spite of 
numerous pre-scason handicaps. A new incentive has been added to the 
state series in the Staples Trophy which is really a prize to go after. 
By all rights it should stay right here at Bowdoin until another season 
and we predict that Bowdoin will earn the first leg on it. Looking over 
the books now. the Polar Bears have defeated the Bobcats and the 
Black Bears and bowed to the Mules. While still in the same zoo. it 
looks like the next two games should be wins for the 'home team for 
the Big White squad has matched each of its three opponents play for 
play in all of the games thus far. 

polar bearings 
The J.V. Baseball team has also been winning Its own 
share of laurels this season and It looks like plenty of material 
will be ready for varsity action under Coach Linn Wells In 
the summer season or next spring. Already the J.V.'s have won 
all of the three games played thus far, Deerlng, Gardiner, and 
Edward Little H.S.'s, and should their duals with Hebron and 
Krirfgton Academies prove sueeessiul, their record will be a 
perfect one of Ave wins and no losses. To pick out any one 
man who Is outstanding on the team would be an impossibility. 
Certainly the combination of Babcock and Mnir in the battery 
Is one that Is hard to beat, and a surplus of men totnll every 
position makes a well-rounded team.

doin's President came at the con- 
clusion of twenty-five years on 
his part ol outstanding service to 
his college. His first contact with 
Bowdoin came in 1896, when he 
entered college as a student. Four 

| years later he graduated with the 
! A.B. degree and a phenomenal 
I scholastic record behind him. 
After further study at Harvard, 
the President returned to his old 
Alma Mater in 1903 as an instruc- 
tor in English and Classics. From 
then on his advancement was 
steady. He became Dean in 1910 
and on May 4, 1918 he was ap- 
pointed President of Bowdoin Col- 
lege, and began the job which he 
has faithfully fulfilled for twenty- 
five years. 

Williams Hurls White Nine 
To 4-2 Victory Over Colby 

Yesterday, in a game played at home, the .Big White 
baseball team beat Colby 4-2, for its third win against one de- 
feat in the struggle to retain the State Crown. Johnny Wil- 
liams and Ed Coombs were the winning battery while Butcher 
and McKay were the losers. 

Only in the fourth did the Colby 
pastimers get to Williams' offer- 
ings for any runs. Bowdoin scored 
twice in the fourth when Briggs 
and Dyer were driven in by Capt. 
Ed Coombs hit. In the last of the 
sixth the Polar Bears came up with 
another tally to score the winning 
run. After Chason had been thrown 
out at third on a play from the 
first baseman after Briggs had 
beaten out a bunt Dyer fliea out to 
the second baseman. While Dolan 
was at the plate, Briggs stole sec- 
ond, and then he was driven in by 
Dolan "s single between the first 
and second basemen. In the eighth, 
Bowdoin salted the ball game away 
when Briggs drew' a base on balls, 
stole second, and scored on D.vir's 
single up the first basv line.

Freshmen, Sophomores, 17 ™ru 19. Enlist now! 

Stay in college! You may qualify for a 

Naval Commission on the sea or In the air. 

Freshman. Sophomores. Here's a 
challenge — and an opportunity! 
Your Navy needs trained men. 
Trained men to become Naval 
Officers! And your college is ready 
to give you that 'training now. 

Here's New Navy Plan 

If you're 17 and not yet 20, you en- 
list now as an Apprentice Seaman 
in the Naval Reserve. You then 
continue in college, including in 
your studies courses strctaung phys- 
ical training, mathematics and 
physics. After you successfully 
complete 1 ' £ calendar years of col- 
lege work, you will be given a clas- 
sification test. 

before you start your training to 
become a Flying Officer. 

However, at any time during 
this two-year period after you have 
reached your 18th birthday, you 
may, if you so desire, take the pre- 
scribed examination for Aviation 
Officer . . . and, if successful, be 
assigned for Aviation training. Stu- 
dents who fail in their college 
courses, or who withdraw from 
college, will also have the privilege 
of taking the Aviation examination. 

Dock or Engineering Officers 

If you qualify in the classifica- 
tion teat and do not volunteer for 

Aviation, you will be selected for 
training as a Deck or Engineer- 
ing Officer. In that case, you will 
continue your college program 
until you receive your bachelor's 
degree, provided you maintain the 
established university standards. 

Other Opportunities 

If you do not qualify as either po- 
tential Aviation Officer or aa poten- 
tial Deck or Engineering Officer 
you will be permitted to finish your 
second calendar year of college 
and will then be ordered to active 
duty as Apprentice Seamen. But, 
even in this event, because of your 
college training, you will have a 
better chance for advancement. 

Pay starts with active duty. 

It's a real challenge! It's a real 
opportunity! Make every minute 
count by doing something about 
this new Navy plan today. 

If you qualify by this test, you 
may volunteer to become a Naval 
Aviation Officer. In this case, you 
wul be permitted to finish the sec- 
ond calendar year of college work

We Need Every College Man 

In Officers' Training 

* To Man the Mightiest Air Army in the World * 

Make Your Choice This 

Week For Present or Futuro 

Officers' Training 

IF your blood boils at the very 
thought of an enslaved world » • • 

If Jap treachery and Nazi savagery 
make you see red and itch for a gun 
— calm yourself with the promise 
that we shall pay them back with com- 
pound interest! 

We shall— and you as a college 
man now have the opportunity of 
serving as a Flying Officer — a Bom- 
bardier, Navigator or Pilot — with 
that branch of service which will do 
that paying back in person— the U. S. 
Army Air forces! 

<Under the new Army Air "Force 
Reserve Plan— if you are a Senior or 
wish to leave school — apply now for 
your Aviation Cadet training. 

You and your friends can share 
together the work and fun of flight 
training, and after approximately 8 
months — earn the right to be flying 
officers in the U. S. Army Air Forces! 

On the other hand, if you are a 
Freshman, Sophomore or Junior— 
you can, if you like, continue your 
studies under the Deferred Service 
Plan of the Army Air Forces— and 
become better prepared for Officers' 
Training later. 

New Simplified Requirements 

To qualify you must be 18 to 26 
(inclusive), physically fit— and pass 
a new, simplified mental test which 
college men find easy.

Juniors— Sophomores— Freshmen 
May Continue Their Education 

1. A new plan allows Juniors, 
Sophomores and Freshmen, aged 
18 to 26, inclusive, to enlist in the 
Air Force Enlisted Reserve and 
continue their schooling, provided 
they maintain satisfactory scholas- 
tic standing. 

All College Me* May Enlist 
for Immediate Service 

2. All college students may enlist 
as privates in the Army Air Forces 
(unassigned) and serve there un- 
til their turns come for Aviation 
Cadet training. 

3. All college students may enlist 
in the Air Force Enlisted Reserve 
and wait until ordered to report 
for Aviation Cadet training. 

Upon graduation or withdrawal 
from college, men will be assigned 
to active duty at a training center 
as faculties become available. 

If the. necessity of war demands, 
the deferred status in the Army 
Reserve may be terminated at any 
time by the Secretary of War. 

The new Army Air Force Enliited he* 
serve Plan is port of on over-oil Army 
■•listed Reserve Corps program shortly 
to be announced. This program will 
provide opportunities for college men 
to enlist in other branches of the Army 
on a deferred basis and to continue 
their education through graduation if 
■ satisfactory standard of work is 
maintained. In case of necessity the 
Secretory of War shall determine when 
they may be colled to active defy. 

It b understood that men so enlisted 
will have the opportunity of competing 
for vac a ncies in officer's candidate

80% Have Won Commissions 

Due to thorough training — about 
four out of every five Aviation Cadets 
this past year received Second Lieu- 
tenants' commissions— of which 67% 
are now flying officers. 

The tremendous expansion of the 
Air Forces should assure rapid ad-

to take advantage of the summer 
sessions, but who would be pre- 
vented from doing so because of 
financial conditions. Because a 
large number of undergraduates 
depend on their summer earnings 
for a large portion of their col-

probably be made three times a

The College Alumni Office ex- 
presses the hope that this year, 
at least, 10 or more Alumni 
Fund Scholarships will be made 
available on a non-competitive 
basis to promising sub-freshmen. 
The selection is to be made by 
a special committee, of which

Sills Discusses Recent 
Program Of Air Corps 

On Monday, May 4, President 
Sills was the Chapel speaker, as 
usual. In the first part of his dis- 
cussion, he outlined the new pro- 
gram which has been adopted by 
the United States Army Air Corps 
for the enlistment of college stu- 
dents. He announced that pamph- 
lets describing the program in de- 
tail are in the College office, and 
advised all students interested in 
the program to consult with Prof. 
Van Cleve as soon as possible. 

In his talk, the President also 
mentioned the fact that any of 
the Bowdoin students who are in 
the sophomore class and over 20 
years of age, thus being ineligible 
for the V-7 program, will be able 
to register in it after passing final 
exams this month. 

In conclusion, he expressed his

By Crawford B Thayer 

It would be both a foolish and futile enterprise for a tran- 
sient being like a college student to try to evaluate such a con- 
stant being as a college president. It would be as though a music 

critic, after walking in on the middle of a concert and then 
leaving again, should try to appreciate the complete concert 
after hearing but a few bars in the second movement. Presi- 
dent Kenneth Charles Morton Sills has served Bowdoin Col- 
lege for twenty-five years now, and I have sneaked in the 
stage door to hear a few bars of his public concert. Obviously 
I am unqualified to make any comments upon his long and 
brilliant career. The one thing I can say, however, is this: The 
part of "Casey V concert which I have seen and heard is mas- 
terful, and if his future accomplishments can equal his past 
ones, and i{ his past achievements have been as thoughtful and 
successful as his present actions now are, then Bowdoin Col- 
lege is certainly obligated to sympathetic personage it has 
as its leader ... 

Professor Means has officially 
inaugurated the Spring session at 
Bowdoin Coliege. for he held the 
first out-door, class of the year 
last Friday morning. There is lit- 
tle question but what the age-old 
practice of our-door classes may 
be traced directly to an Homeric 
influence. . . . P.S. Since Profes- 
sor Means will read this column 
primarily for the preceding item, 
we placed it first so he wouldn't 
have to waste his time reading 
through the chaff which follows. 

We are glad to see that "Presi- 
dent Lincoln" has taken steps to- 
ward ending the Civil War be- 
tween i he North and South of 
Hyde and Appleton Halls as we 
suggested last week. After last 
week's item someon^ threatened 
to break our windows .... Charles 

Bacon. '43 stated Sunday last 
"Sex is queer," and we pass it on 
for what it is worth . . . One of 
the Masque and Gown's faithful 
thespiennes (note the Feminine 
ending!) is now reading up on 
navy customs, probably as a con- 
sequence of being "at sea" after 
a date with one of the "90-day 
wonders" . . . 

We noted with interest the bit- 
ter ire which one of our campus 

individuals expressed in a /com- 
munication to the ORIENT last 
week at Bowdoin students' ^pref- 
erance of the local theater to, the 
music concert held in Mem. Hall 
the same night. We can not resist 
stating that that student himself 
went to the flicks first, and 
dropped in late to spend a little 
while absorbing the culture he 
praises. Incidentally, if he merely 
wrote the letter for his colleague, 
who was justified in his observa- 
tions, then our bohemianesque 
friend (and we mean friend) is 
the first ghost writer who ever 
took by-!ine credit for works writ- 
ten for his master's voice . . . 

Professor Chase had his Shake- 
speare class in stitches during a 
large portion of a whole period 
last week, and during his bril- 
liant barrage of wit and wisdom 
he defined teachers of Shake- 
speare "harmless necessary drud- 
ges . . . 

Say, feller! Hadn't you better 
hit the books. Only two days read- 
ing period this time, and me four 
months behind too! . . . 

We note with interest that the 
cigars left over from the Presi- 
dent's banquet are now selling in 
the Union Cafeteria at two for a 
quarter . . . 

uates are keeping up the tradition. ' 
To keep up our record in the fu- : 
ture, we must look to you. You will 
be called on for military service, ■ 
but beyond that, when victory and 
peace are at last attained, are the 
problems of peace. Enough compli- 
cated problems are set for solution 
by the war, but the problems of, 
peace and of regeneration will call , 

for the country's best trained 
minds over many years. Increasing- 
ly these problems must be given at- 
tention. Even now as we do all we 
can for victory, we must have in 
mind post war policies, and you in- 
coming freshmen will find your- 
selves deeply involved in their de- | 
sign and execution. Bowdoin offers 
you training and knowledge in the 
conditions from which these pol- 
icies must be developed. 

"Welcome to Bowdoin! Your 
stay here may be less than the 
four years which has been spent in 
undergraduate life in the past. 
Start your training soon, on June 
22nd if possible. Make the most of 
what the college offers you while 
you are here. Bowdoin — its alumni, 
its administration, its faculty — 
from its wealth of experience of- 
fers you its best"! 

Dr. Hammond expressed himself 
as eager to meet all visiting men.

approximate schedule in order that

Sills Delivers Annual Baccalaureate Address To Graduating Class 

Patterson, Under Secretary Of War, 
Receives Doctor Ot Laws Degree 

Speaks On War 
And Freedom Of Soul 

Declaring that intellectual freedom is being attacked from 
all sides, President Kenneth C. M. Sills opened Bowdoin's 
1 37th commencement week with his baccalaureate address to 
the members of the graduating class in the First Parish Church 
last Sunday afternoon. The complete text of the President's 
address follows: 

Fear not them which kill the 
body but are not able to kill the 

That this war is being fought in 
behalf of political liberty he who 
runs may read. However com- 
plex may be the causes that 
brought on the war, its purpose is 
as simple as that— to preserve lib- 
erty. It makes little difference now 
that we as a nation have not al- 
ways lived up to our ideals, nor 
that the countries with which we 
are joined have not spotless rec- 
ords; it is as clear as anything can 
be that our enemies are engaged in 
a war of conquest and conquest 
based on force. And if they conquer 
we can send all our dreams for a 
better world, all our hopes for a 
real peace, into the limbo where 
dwell those good things which 
come to nothing because of cow- 
ardice, lack of conviction, failure 
to sacrifice. Sometimes a great 
cartoon sums up in a few bold 
strokes what it takes many words 
to say. In a recent number of 
"Punch" a picture represents the 
President of the United States sit- 
ting beside a table in a tent in his 
working clothes with a map spread 
out before him. In the background 
is the spirit of Abraham Lincoln 
saying "Your burden is greater 
than mine, for you must free the 
world from slavery." If anyone has 

any lingering doubts as to what 
the war is all about, let him study 
that picture; let him reduce ideol- 
ogies and propaganda and explana- 
tions to the simplest possible 
terms; he will find that a war of 
conquest is going on and that if 
we lose the war we lose not only all 
political but all personal freedom. 
We have not, to be sure, by any 
manner of means put our own 
house in perfect order so far as 
liberty is concerned. But when a 
conflagration is raging next door 
and when our roof may be on fire 
the first and essential thing to do 
is to fight the flames. That is ex- 
actly the situation today. And in 
doing that we must necessarily 
suspend for the time being many 
of our cherished privileges. We 
cannot in war tune speak or act or 
work exactly as we please. But 
there is nothing new or strange 
about giving up for a time lib- 
erties that we regard as normal. 
Whenever a quarantine is put in 
force by the public health author- 
ities, individual homes, districts, at 
times whole communities have to 
be greatly restricted until the dan- 
ger is over. When the whole na- 
tion is in peril in war time personal 
liberty will be more and more cur-

Honorary Degree Recipients 

Four Seniors Deliver Their 
Commencement Speeches 

Charles T. Ireland, Jr., Frederick G. Fisher, Jr., Robert 
H. Lunt, and John L. Baxter, Jr., were the four members of 
the graduating class who delivered commencement addresses 
during the exercises held this morning in the First Parish 

With "The Bourgeois Collegian" 
as the title of his speech, Ireland 
declared that the fundamental 
faults of our democracy lie not in 
its inefficiency and confusion as 
pointed out so often by the dicta- 
tor nations, but rather in the 
quality of leadership of the bour- 
geois class, which can be seen so 
plainly in present undergraduate 

Said Ireland. "Appropriate 
training camps for the sons of the 
economically wealthy burghers are 
often famous ivy-clad institutions 
on the Atlantic seaboard, although 
geography and botony need not 
necessarily fit into the scene. Col- 
leges such as Harvard. Yale, Am- 
herst, Williams, and to a slightly 
less degree Bowdoih, are liked by 
the perseverant, penny-watching, 
staunch old merchants as suitable 
places to groom their progency 
for a life of usefulness. 

"It must be remembered that 
when I start unfavorably criticiz- 

ing the college boy, I am neces- 
sarily criticizing myself and can- 
not be accused of mounting a pin- 
nacle to hurl mud. But I am 
forced to say that, ironically 
enough, it seems to me the bour- 
geoisie through its off-spring is 
breeding its own destruction and 
consequently contributing heavily 
to the misfortunes of the nation. 
"For to me it appear* that the 
sons of the bourgeoisie being 
trained in the type of school I 
mentioned have somehow been de- 
prived of the very virtues and es- 
timable qualities to which they 
owe their position. Gone are the 
middle class gifts of self-reliance, 
self-discipline, respect for right, 
or even respect for anything. On 
the surface at least the modern 
collegian is devoid of belief in 
practically anything you care to 
mention, and has adopted a cyni- 
cal, doubting attitude founded up- 
on half-truths and the smatter-

Baxter Will Be Married 
In College Chapel Sunday 

Monday afternoon, June 1, at four o'clock John L. Bax- 
ter, Jr., secretary-treasurer of the class of 1942, will become 
its first member to be married after graduation, beating out 
class president Robert L. Bell, who plans to be married on 
Tuesday, by one day. 

Baxter, a Brunswick man him- 
self, will marry Miss Alice Preston 
Comee. also of Brunswick, in a spe- 
cial service in the Bowdoin chapel { 
conducted by the Rev. Sheldon I 
Christian. A group of Bowdoin men | 
will assist Baxter during the cere- 
mony. Joseph H. MacKay '42 will 
serve as best man, while the ushers 
will include Dougald MacDonald 
"42, Frederick G. Fisher. Jr. '42, 
Daniel T. Drummond, Jr. '42. May- 
land H. Morse, Jr.. '42. Hartley 
Baxter, II, and Jonathan French. 

Following the marriage service 
in the chapel, a reception for the 
bride and groom will be held in the 
Ifoulton Union. In view of the gas 
rationing. Baxter stated, plans for 
the honeymoon are rather vague.

Men whose ancestors were 

Of the earth, the life of flowers 
Turned to golden food by bees. 
The spirits of the borne and trees. 
The fire on the hearth, dear bread. 
Salt, and the proud and high-held 


Rome's virtue* many years have 

In Bowdoin's stout centurion, 
Kenneth Sills, who teaches the 

In which great Vergil's thoughts 

were sung. 
The rock of Rome is in him deep. 
In shifting times, this man dares 

Honesty in his words and eyes 
And the simplicity of the wise. 
He lives by the ancient iilan.

the Masque and Gown, under the 
direction of Prof. George H. Quin- 
by, presented Shakespeare's "Ju- 
lius Caesar" before a large au- 
dience of alumni, students, and 
townspeople. The play was per- 
formed in the version used by Or- 
son Welles for his Mercury Thea- 
ter production in 1937, in modern 
dress and the "arena" style. This 
style of acting, which has also 
been usc*d by the Masque and 
Clown in their productions of 
"Room Service" and "The Milky 
Way this year, seats the audience 
on all four sides of the acting 
afreiLr. and toKuthu* -with the re- 
sulting absence of scenery restores 
in great measure the fluidity of 
the Elizabethan stage.

played by Lindo Ferrini, '42, who 
has be>n one of Bowdoin's leading 
actors during his college career.

and has been seen this year in im- 
portant rarts in "Room Service" 
and the one-acts. Cassius, of the 
"lean and hungry look" was played 
by Howard Huff, '43. who has also 
appeared in several Masque and 
Gown productions, as has Curtis 
Jones, '43. who portrayed the title 
part of Caesar. Alan Cole, '45 ap- 
peared as Mark Antony in his first 
major role at Bowdoin. Eliot 
Tozer, Jr., '43, in the part of Lu- 
cius, was the tenor soloist. Portia, 
Brutus's wife, was played by Miss 
Nancy Webb, while Calpurnia, the 
wife of Caesar, was performed by 
Mrs. Betsy Morss. both of whom 
have often donated their services 
to Masque and Gown productions. 

Others in the large cast in- 
cluded: Frederic Blodgett, '42,

that the present generation is not

the chance to make improvements

anyone of you to pick out three 
who feel that all things in this

Today is Memorial Day, Commence- 
ment Day for some ninety Bowdoin men 
who face their future under the darken- 
ing shadows of a world at war. Today 
they leave the quiet lanes of the campus 
to see what the world offers them. And 
what does the world offer to the Bow- 
doin graduates of 1942? 

It is a dark outlook for the most of 
diem. The big majority of them will soon 
face more uncertainties when they join 
their classmates and buddies in the serv- 
ice of their country, fighting the fight for 
freedom. Let us not forget the 
men, now in the service of our country, 
who would be here in normal times. On 
this Memorial Day Commencement, let 
us not hesitate to pay tribute to them 
when we honor the class of 1942. The 
college is proud of them. 

Twenty-five years ago men left this 
campus to join their buddies in the fight 
for an ideal. They won the war bu v they 
lost the peace. As a result, another gen- 
eration must go forward today to make 
great sacrifices; But it could be worse. 
It would be worse had we lost the war 
25 years ago. Today we must win the 
war and we must win the peace. 

Yes, the class of 1942 today goes for—** 
ward to face the world. What is behind 
them is a thing of the past now— they 
must proceed on the basis of what they 
are, what they have learned here and 
what they dp from now on. 

But that isn't all. They have the cause 
of justice and righteousness and decency 
on their side. 

They have the words of President 
Sills: Fear not those who would destroy 
the body but who cannot destroy -Hke : 

They have, the words written in an 
orphans' magazine about the war their 
forefathers waged in 1776: "Those men 
and women won the war the hard way 
. . . They gave all they had for an ideal 
* and many of them earned but an un- 
marked grave . . . Today history is re- 
peating itself. We are fighting for an 
ideal; for the right of independence and 
of freedom." 

They have the words of Paul V. Mc- 
Nutt, former commissioner of the Phil- 
ippines: "You have a mightier task, a 
task the last generation fumbled — that is 
to win the peace . . . We have learned* 
that the American way of life will en- 
dure only if we believe in it — and fight 
for it when necessary ." 

Finally they have the words of Gen- 
eral Douglas Mac Arthur: "Write your 
history in red on the breasts of your en- 
emy . . . only those are fit to live who 
are not afraid to die for their country." 


A word of welcome is in order to the 
loyal alumni of the college who have 
made the big effort to "come back" to- 
day. Memorial Day, to Bowdoin a war- 
time Commencement. There are not as 
many here as there were a year ago 
when a record number returned. But it is. 
significant that go many ait ggawfent- 
ing their loyalty in returning in such 
times as these. 

Some ninety men received their de- 

grees from the college this morning. 
Some ninety men out of a class of about 
180 which entered Bowdoin in Septem- 
ber, 1938. There are more than the 
usual causes for so many '42 men leaving 
college during the last four years. The 
war and the draft have been tremendous 
factors, taking a heavy toll in an already 
drastically reduced class membership. 

The young Bowdoin men of the class 
of 1942 who this morning received their 
degrees and the young Bowdoin men of 
the class of 1942 who are at this minute 
fighting on the many far-flung battle- 
fronts can tell the alumni what it means 
to receive their cherished college degree 
in such times as these. The graduates 
can tell the alumni how grateful they are 
to secure their degrees. Those who have 
been called into service and have not 
been able to receive their degrees can 
tell the alumni what the degree means 
and what the loss of it means to them. 
All of them, every last one of them, 
graduates and non-graduates, can tell 
the alumni the three same things they all 
now want: they want to thank the 
alumni for the generous scholarship con- 
tributions which helped them so much, 
they want the alumni to provide more 
help so that remaining undergraduates 
may stay in school, and they want the 
alumni to continue to send men to Bow- 

Bowffoin alumni have been very gen- 
erous in their contributions to the college 
and the undergraduates have been very 
grateful. But from now on the college 
will be in session continuously the year 
round. Many boys will not be here this 
summer. They will have to work to se- 
cure enough funds to continue their 
studies — they will also be taking a bigger 
chance at being drafted before they can 
secure their degrees. Those hard-working 
boys belong at Bowdoin. They are the 
kind of boys who should get their de- 
grees. The large and generous contribu- 
tions of Bowdoin alumni have been a 
tremendous help to them and they are 
grateful. The college is doing what it 
can to help them again. But any addi- 
tional projects, plans, drives and support 
by the alumni would be doubly appreci- 
ated by those who are now facing 
crises in their lives. They are here today 
— they may be in Australia or invading 
the continent tomorrow. For the alum- 
ni interested, the cause is bigger and bet- 
ter than ever before. 

Only about thirty-five freshmen will 
enter Bowdoin June 22 for the summer 
session. Some time ago we appealed to 
the alumni to boost the summer session 
and the fall sessioV and to accelerate 
their activities in urging boys to come 
^tp. Bowdoin. We still have confidence 
that the alumni will shift theft" "rushing* 
activity into high gear and send the 
boys to Bowdoin in the fall and in the 

Today is not the time for swivel-chair 
philosophy from white-collared alumni 
who complain about undergraduate ac- 
tivity and undergraduate discipline and 
whose efforts might well be directed into 
more profitable channels of activity. 
There is a bigger cause at hand today — 
there are projects for the alumni in 
keeping undergraduates in college finan- 
cially and sending more boys here in the 
entering classes. The undergraduates of 
today don't need to be put in their places 
by the alumni. The young men of today 
are facing a bigger crisis than did the 
alumni in their undergraduate days and 
are facing it better (to wit., President 
Sills' annual report.) Such nonsensical, 
time-wasting, childish complaints of a 
minority of alumni as the condition of 
dormitory rooms, undergraduate activ- 
ity, student discipline and the like sink 
into deep obscurity before the bigger is- 
sue of sending men to Bowdoin before 
sending them to war. Now is the time 
for men to work at the big problems of 
the day or to remain silent. 

We said in another editorial on this 
page today that the graduates today face 
their challenge and we urged them to 
meet it — we say here that the alumni of 
Bowdoin face a challenge too and we 
urge them to meet it and we are confident 
that they will not fail to answer.

Socrates saw this clearly 
over two thousand years ago when 
he set forth the duty of the good 

"Yen, one must r eve re nce the 
fatherland, and yield to it when 
it is harsh more than to one's 
father, and either win it to one's 
side or do what it commands, 
and suffer quietly what it en- 
joint, whether that means to be 
beaten, to be put in chains, or to 
be led to war and there to be 
wounded or slain. One must do 
it all, for that Ls what justice 
demands. One must not weaken, 
nor flinch, nor leave one's post, 
but in war, in court, and every- 
where one must do what the fa- 
therland enjoins, or else win her 
over by means that are by na- 
ture right." 

Incidentally that is a pretty good 
definition of democracy — one must 
yield to the majority at the same 
time retaining the right to win 
over the majority to one's side if 
he is not in agreement By political 
liberty we mean that everyone 
should have as much freedom as 
is reasonable, as will not infringe 
upon the freedom of others. What 
is true of individuals is in the main 
true also of nations. Each nation is 
entitled to as much freedom as will 
not impair the freedom of its 
neighbors. In the new world— and 
always there is to be a new world 
— such freedom must be inter- 
preted along economic and social 
as well as along poiilieal lines. But 
Germany, Italy, Japan U victorious 
would never tolerate such freedom, 
for their whole aapception of the 
state denies it, and; those few Ger- 
mans who within their country 
sUU cherish ideals of freedom are 
the most tragic people in the world. 

If you glance over the world at 
the present time you see several 
countries where the body of free- 
dom has been killed. What Utters 
of freedom remain in Denmark, 
Norway, Holland, Belgium, France, 
Poland, Czechoslovakia, Greece, 
Luxemburg! But the Germans have 
not yet been able to kill the soul 
of free peoples. Among the hor- 
rors of the war are hundreds of 
school teachers in Norway, bishops, 
priests' and ministers in many oc- 
cupied territories, street Arabs in 
Athens, Dutch patriots by the hun- 
dreds who have faced firing squads, 
Christian missionaries in occupied 
China, whole cities and communi- 
ties which though shackled and 
conquered yet keep alive the flame 
of liberty. Thus terrible total war, 
differing from all other wars in 
that the dead and wounded 
amongst civilians in so many coun- 
tries, exceed the casualties of the 
armed forces also differs in that 
resistance to tyranny on the part 
of the civil population, is almost as 
important as the military effort. 
But the one point I wish to em- 
phasize is the truth that although 
for the time being the forces of 
tyranny have crushed so many of 
the free. peoples of the world, from 
all the evidence that we can gather 
there are still individuals by the 
score and whole communities 
whose souls the utmost brutality 
has not been able to kill, and those 
free men and free women are ex- 
amples to us all. 
Intellectual Liberty 

There are many different aspects 
of liberty; there is one sort in 

which the college is particularly 
concerned, intellectual liberty, the 
freedom of the mind. This depends 
in a measure of course upon free- 
dom of action, freedom of person, 
political freedom. It is hard, 
though not impossible, to have in- 
tellectual ease when overshadow- 
ing dangers or insecurity threaten 
the body- But the real foes here 
are not so much persons > as atti- 
tudes, pride, prejudice, ignorance, 1 
cowardice. This is a form of free- 
dom with which the college deals. 
We all applaud intellectual hon- 
esty though many would be hard 
put to define it. Indeed a wise 
friend of mine, a graduate of Bow- 
doin and a man of affairs, once re- 
marked to me that the very best 
service the college rendered was 
to bring the undergraduates for 
four years in contact with teachers 
who by and large are intellectual- 
ly honest men, and who have no 
axes to grind. Be that as it may, 
intellectual freedom is at the basis 
of all liberal education. In these 
days when standards of culture 
and of scholarship are constantly 
threatened within and without, 
when the intellectual life both in 
Europe and on this continent is at 
low ebb, I should like to read to 
you a statement on the values of a 
liberal education made by a great 
leader of American thought some 
forty years ago: 

"By ideas the world is gov- 
erned. They are stronger than 
kings in council, or representa- 
tives in congress. They are more 
enduring than bills of rights, or 
written constitutions, or codes, 
or creeds, or treaties. They bind 
together men of different speech, 
of different race, of different 
pursuits. They give unity to hu- 
man purposes, they promote hu- 
man progress. We acquire these 
ideas unconsciously, from what 
we see, hear, and read. We hold 
them tenaciously. We do not seek 
their definition in the diction- 
aries, nor trace them to person- 
al authorities. We accept them 
as our inheritance from antiquity 
we kortw not how remote.' 

"One of these ideas we can dis- 
tincUy trace at least to Aris- 
totle. Cicero gave emphasis to it. 
The scholastics did not lose sight 
of it. In the days of the Renais- 
sance its force was acknowl- 
edged. The Church upheld it. 
The Reformation did not reject 
it. The Puritans believed in it. 
The English universities trans- 
mitted it to New England and 
Virginia in the middle of the 
seventeenth century; afterward, 
to Canada, Australia, and India. 
The Atlantic States have sent 
the idea inward, westward, sea- 
ward, and it is now as clearly 
recognized in Berkeley as in 
Boston. It has crossed a second 
ocean and is at home in Asia. 
This idea is expressed by the 
term 'a liberal education.' 

That great idea is today in peril 

please. They have no power to kill 
your mind. What you have to 
guard against are those foes of 
your own making that may keep 
your mind narrow and restricted; 
that may prevent you from widen- 
ing the areas of your knowledge 
and of your thought. 

From our heritage of English 
history and English literature 
there are many examples of "the 
invincible knights of old" who, 
again to use Wordsworth's words, 
remind us, "We must live free or 
die who speak the tongue that 
Shakespeare spoke." Everyone 
here will recall such heroes. In 
my reading I ran across the other 
day a statement that is to the 
point. When in the early part of 
the sixteenth century, Sir Thomas 
More was imprisoned in the tower, 
he wrote a book not defending this 
dogma or that but defending the 
right of the individual soul to hold 
any dogma at all against the com- 
mand of the civil power, and all 
the tone he was cheerfully facing 
life imprisonment and death itself, 
rather than swear an oath which 
he thought false. And today in 
jails and concentration camps all 
over Europe are modern martyrs, 
modern Sir Thomas More's, who 
prove time and time again that 
though tyrants may kill the body, 
the mind of free man is still un- 

Spiritual Liberty: 

According to some of the older 
theologians with whom my prede- 
cessor of a hundred years ago 
would have agreed, man consists 
of the trinity of body, mind and 
spirit. Deep down in our hearts 
we all know there are spiritual as 
well as material values in life. 
When we speak of spiritual liberty 
we mean the freedom of the in- 
dividual soul. Here we are faced 
with one of the great pa r adoxes of 
life, that man is only really free 
as he serves, that God's service ia 
perfect freedom. In other words, 
as we give ourselves to some high 
cause, or as we make sacrifices 
for those we love, we become more 
and more free in our own souls. 
The selfish man, the man who puts 
his own interests and pleasures 
above everything else, the indivi- 
dual who is always standing up 
for his own rights and privileges 
and who always insists on getting 
them, is not really free; he is the 
slave of his own limitations. 

What, however, is often over- 
looked so far as spiritual liberty 
is concerned is the relation be^ 
tween knowldge and freedom. 
Knowledge is often the gate to 
liberty. "Ye shall know the truth 
and the truth shall make you 
free" are words we hear over and 
over ag-iin without realizing their 
deep implication. Surel/ here not 
merely intellectual troth is meant; 
if that were the case we should 
have to exclude from spiritual 
freedom most of the sons of men. 
The truth about which Christ was 

both from sources without and 1 speaking was of course the truth 
sources within, and it is the duty (of the spirit, the truth that unites 
as well as the privilege of all those j man to God, the truth that Ls sim-

circumstances fortune may bring 1 There Ls, however, one danger 
you, you need not be overcome if | against which we must constantly 
you guard and keep your intellect- be on guard. We must not think 
ual integrity. No Hitler, no Mus- i so much of acquiring freedom for 
soJini, no other tyrant, can prevent ; ourselves that we forget the need 
you from thinking as you please, | of extending that freedom to 
or from thinking of them as you others; such forget fulness is one 

cause, and not the least important, 
of the world chaos today. If we 
truly realize the value of spiritual 
liberty for ourselves, we recognize 
also its yalue for others and wc 
must be constantly thinking of the 
other fellow, whether he be our 
companion or our teacher or a fel- 
low workman of any sort. Here 
the words of Theodore Parker are 
appropriate: "Democracy does 710 1 
mean 'I am as good as you are, 
but you are as good as I am.' " In 
other words and very simply, to 
think of self is not the way to ac- 
ouire freedom; we must always 
think of others and work for 
Others. The good man is the one 
who forgetting himself is always 
striving to secure rights and privi- 
leges for his neighbor. Incidental- 
ly, the same law holds of nations. 
In all phases of life, indeed, there 
is this constant conflict between 
selfishness and unselfishness, be- 
tween the material and the spiri- 

• Let me give you an example 
from your own experience: The 
other evening an intelligent senior 
was much 'troubled in comment- 
ing on what he thought was the 
futility of a liberal education. We 
are taught, he said, no particular 
skills, no technical trades, no ex- 
act accomplishments; in a long list 
of questions submitted in a very 
practical Army questionnaire he 
could find no answer that he could 
honestly give as to his qualifica- 
tions for any specific service. And 
naturally that led him to wonder 
if in the business of peace a liberal 
education was as useful as techni- 
cal training. Another senior said, 
that to the question, "What good 
would a liberal education do me; 
what good would the knowledge of 
the history of art do me, when I 
stand behind a machine gun," a 
wise teacher had explained that 
if he followed through, education 
in principles and ideals gives the 
reason for his standing behind 
this machine gun for it explains 
why such action may be necessary. 
When one is considering the prob- 
lems of a liberal education it is 
well to remember the words of 
Woodrow Wilson that college deals 
not with the fortunes of men but 
with their spirits. It Ls concerned 
with those ideals and principles 
and causes that actuate men in all 
times and in all places, that make 
men lose themselves in generous 
enthusiasm, that show how man 
becomes eternal. Today the Chris- 
tian church is celebrating Whit- 
sunday, the Feast of the Pente- 
cost, commorating the gift of 'the 
Spirit of Life. It is a good day 
on which to emphasize the high 
liberty that comes to all the sons 
of men when they realize that 
they are the children of God and 
immortal souls.

History repeats itself and with a 
very few changes I could address 
you in the same terms that I used 
twenty-five years ago to the Class 
of 1918. By a strange quirk of 
fate, or dispensation of Provi- 
dence—whatever you wish to call 
it — your generation, brought up 
through no fault of your own to 
dislike restraint, requirements, re- 
strictions, educated and trained 
without much discipline and some- 
what self-willed, suddenly finds it- 
self obliged to change its motto 
from "Do what thou wilt" to "Do 
what thou must." The transition 
Ls not easy, and it is only natural 
that there should be some resent- 
ment and much searching of the 
] heart. When one finds all his well 
laid plans for the future sudden- 

ly disturbed, and whiTe one is on 
the process of adjusting himself 
to the thought that the cause may 
be more important than the indi- 
vidual, there is room for sympathy 
and understanding on the part of 
us your elders who in a measure 
though n a different way share 
your experience. But in one re- 
spect it may not be a bad thing 
that you have to face new reali- 
ties. For life, whether . in peace 
time or war time, would very soon 
show you that you will nave to do 
many things that you do not like 
to do, that freedom is never ab- 
solute, and that if you are to he 
happy and useful you must he 
learned in the law of liberty, a 
phrase that is a contradiction in 
terms but that means you can only 
be free as you work for others 
and forget self. 

For the immediate future there 
is not much that I can add. You 
will remember, very little that I 
say this afternoon; if you retain 
the text, "Fear not them which 
kill the body, but are not, able to 
kill the soul," and the phrase "the 
unconquerable mind" 1 shall be 
content. Yet the college cannot 
permit you to go from her halls 
without expressing the faith and 
the confidence and the trust which 
she has in you. She knows that 
you will play your part well, 
whether you be, on the stage a 
short or a long time. She knows 
that come what may in the dan- 
gers of war or in the vicissitudes 
of peace you will keep your own 
soul, and that in those inner cita- 
dels of self your soul will ever be 
superior to fortune. She knows 
that while you have been from 
time to time impatient with what 
you have learned here, and have 
been unusually critical and ques- 
tioning, you realize full well that 
the deep things the college teaches 
are and always will be a part of 
your inner being. In these dark 
days We are all of us being school- 
ed in humility, and it is well that 
vouth should have a part in that 
experience. We all realize the 
many things that are amiss, but 
we realize also more and more the 
value of intellectual and personal 
liberty and the power of the spirit. 
As one who has long believed that 
after all the poet has the last 
word, I wish to send you forth 
from this church this afternoon 
with the words written by a grad- 
ual of the college in the class of 
1 1917, who at his Commencement 
j was almost exactly in your posi- 
1 1 ion. who later lost his life on the 
i battlefield "in naming France," 
jand who. as his letters home 
] showed, in all his experiences kept 
jhLs own soul, brave and true and 
I free 

I "Deep-brooding pines, beneath 

whose aging peace 
The suniit faces flash, and turning 

Remember us, who take a swift 

And in far lands defend the best 

we know. 
Deserted halls, that echoed to the 

(Of these our voices seeking after 
i truth - 
Forget the carelessness you oftea 

found ; 
Remember still the strivings of 

our youth 
That mixes dreams with laughter, 

songs with tears. 
Pure gold with dross, and never 

will confess 
The deepest of its loyalties and 

Till suddenly it renders all — 

no less."

With the beginning of the war and the introduction of 
the summer semester at Bowdoin, the first question that was, 
aroused in the line of sports, was what would happen to the I 
athletic schedule and what would be provided to "keep the | 
athletes in training. A visit to President Sills and Athletic! 
Director Mai Morrell, however, reassured us that the college 
would carry on much hke a regular pre-war semester.

As it stands now the college has appropriated a fund for, 
the support of all summer activities such as golf, tennis, base- 
hall, swimming, and interfraternity sports. At present no 
schedules have been drawn up; however, it is hoped that meets 
with summer army camps and any other leagues of that class 
can be arranged.

The calisthenic classes that were introduced here at 
Bowdoin last February will be conducted as usual in the after- 
noons by the coaching staff. Contrary to the idle rumor, only 
three attendances a week will be required except for the stu- 
dents who have entered some branch of the service and are 
required to put in more hours per week.

The past season on the whole has not been outstanding. 
The introduction of basketball as a varsity sport and the calis- 
thenics classes have been die two major changes in athletics.

Big White Captures Eight

Bowdoin's only outfight state championship in a major 
sport this year was won by Coach Jack Magee's Big White 
trackmen, who surpassed many earlier performances and went 
all out in the State Meet at Whittier Field, May 8, to upset a 
favored University of Maine squad by a lone point, 58 l /i to

With Bates and Colby unable to 
offer much in the way of consist- 
ent competition, it was a close 
struggle from start to finish be- 
tween the Polar Bears and the Pale 
Blue from Oram. Maine went into 
an early lead as Dodge, Harding, 
Weisman, and Johnson took 15 
points in the three weight events, 
as against three for Bowdoin 
through Perkins' second in the 
hammer throw. 

The running and jumping events, 
however, provided a different 
story, and the Big White piled up 
eight first places and shared an- 
other. Al Hillman easily garnered 
firsts in both the mile and two 
mile. Hal Bunting vaulted seven 
inches higher than ever before to 
take the pole vault- at 11 feet, 1 
inch. Bob Edwards, recently elect- 
ed track captain for the coming 
year, turned in a fine performance 
in winning the high hurdles and 
placing second in the lows. His 
teammate, Ralph Strachan, helped

Pastimers Tie 
For State Title 

By Hal Curtis 

Breaks hit Coach Linn Wells' 
baseball team this year and so 
Bowdoin is forced to share the 
newly donated Staples Trophy, for 
the winner of the State Series, 
with the three other Maine col- 
leges. All four teams won three 
and lost three this year to get no- 
where in the struggle for the 
championship. Jimmy Dolan was 
elected to succeed Ed "Beeaer" 
Coombs as captain of the 1943 

When the abreviated schedule 
got underway in April, the out- 
look was bright despite the loss 
of Brad Hunter and Bob Frazer 
for varsity play. In the opening 
game against Bates, the pastim- 
ers, behind the six-hit pitching of 
Johnny Williams, came through 
with an easy 5-1 victory. Captain 
Otombs was the big gun on of- 
fense, driving in three runs with 
a double and a single. 

The next game was with Colby 
at Waterville, the day after house 
parties. Although Williams again 
hurled six-hit ball, the Big White 
made four errors, which, coupled 
with a hit, gave Colby four runs in 
the first. Colby got another on 
a double and a single in the 
fourth which was enough to beat 
the four tallies which the Bowdoin 
boys could turn in. 

The next day, the white-stock- 
inged nine came up with another 
win. this time over Maine. After 
starting pitcher John Woodcock 
had given up two runs in the first 
and had loaded the bases with 
none out in the second. Bill Mudge 
took over. Mudge retired the 
Black Hears and, allowed only >wo 
hits in the full eight innings 
which he pitched. The Polar Bears 
got to Gordon Toaby, Maine's 
leading Hurler, for two in the first, 
and two more came in the seventh 
on a double by Coombs. 

In the next game, Johnny Wil- 
liams got back at Colby for the 
first defeat with a well-pitched 
5-2 win. 

On May 7, the bad luck started 
at Bates. The Polar Bears had a 
five to two lead with two men 

I to sweU the total score by revere-^ 
| ing the procedure, taking second, in 
; the high hurdles and winning over 
I the longer route. 

Johnny Matthews beat Youl- 

; den of Maine to the tape in the 

; century in the good time of 10.2 

j seconds, and Joe Carey displayed a 

beautifully timed kick to take the 

880 in 1 :5&2. The remaining first 

places came in the broad jump and 

high Jump. Bob Buckley won the 

former with a tremendous leap of 

22 feet, % inch, and Herb Hanson 

tied for first in the high jump at 5 

feet, 10 inches. 

Prospects for the coming year 
are fairly bright, according to 
Coach Magee. Although the frosh 
squad this past year was one of the 
weakest in many years, there are 
some very excellent men in the 
pole vault and high jump. Only two 
seniors will be lost through grad- 
uation, Art Keylor and Captain 
Bob Newhouse. 

Coach Magee feels that the ex- 
ample set by this 1&42 track squad 
should help to increase and en- 
courage the active interest of un- 
dergraduates in track athletics. 
The individual performances of 
some members of the tr^ack team. 
Captain-elect Bob Edwards being 
one excellent example, have proved 
that natural ability is not always 
an essential for track success. Hard , 
work and rigorous training may of- 
ten make a consistent point win- 
ner out of a man who at first 
seems hopelessly poor track ma- 
terial, and Coach Magee believes 
that this should be a guiding prin- 
ciple for those men who wish to 
enter track competition. -

gone in the last of the ninth. 
Johnny Williams had two strikes 
on the batter, but he lost him. 
This gave the Bobcats tho inspir- 
ation which they needed to score 
four runs to win, 6-5. The next 
day, while the trackmen were 
winning the State Meet at Bruns- 
wick, the pastimers lost the State 
Title to Maine 2-1. Again there 
were two men gone in the. last of 
the ninth when the Black Bears 
came up with two runs to sew up 
the ball game and tie the Series. 
John Woodcock twirled four-hit 
ball, but the Big White got only 
three hits, two by- Dolan, off the 
offerings of Dan Butcher. 

The team was 1 by far the 
smoothest in the state. Captain 
Ed Coombs was outstanding both 
at and behind the plate. His arm 
was well respected; not many 
steals were attempted, and when • 
they were, his throws generally 
had the runner. His clutch hits 
drove in the winning runs in two 
ball games. On the mound, 
Johnny Williams was tops. His 
submarine balls won two, and the 
two he lost were only by one-run 
margins. Sophomores Bill Mudge 
and Jphn Wpodcoqk both turned 
hrVeil-pitched games. 

At first. Will Small continued 
his stellar performance of last 
year. The keystone sack combina- 
tion of Dick Johnstone at second 
and Jimmy Dolan at shortstop 
was by far the best in the state. 
Third base was well handled by 
Ben Pierce and Sid Chason. The 
outfield of Jim Dyer, Bob Bell, 
and Brad Briggs was terrific, de- 
fensively. The trouble with the 
team as a whole was a lack of 
power at the plate. 

Coach Wells' is losing four big 
men by graduation: Ed Coombs, 
Bob Bell, Jim Dyer, and Johnny 
Williams. They are good, every 
one of thenx and the loss will be 
felt. HowevJM\ with Mudge, Wood- 
cock. Smallj Johnstone. Dolan. 
Pierce. ChaiW and Briggs return- 
ing, the 1943 edition of the Polar 
Bears should be strong. There are 
some fine prospects coming up 
from the jayvees, who lost only to 
Danny MacFayden's strong He- 
bron outfit. For catchers, there are 
Jack Lally. Wally Morgan, and 
Bill Muir: for pitchers. Herb Bab- 
cock, Chan Schmalz, Bob Shana- 
han, and Lloyd Knight; infielders, 
John Curtis and Tommy Huleatt; 
and two slugging outfielders, Bob 
DeKalb and Walt Finnagan. 

With these men, barring acci- 
dents and the armed forces, Coach 
Wells should be all right when 
next season rolls around.

Sixty-Two Men 
Make Dean's List 

Sixty-two men made the Dean's 
List this past semester. Forty-eight 
upperclassmen received grades of 
straight "B" or better and nine 
freshmen received one-half As 
while five freshmen received 
straight A's. All these men will be 
entitled to unlimited cuts except 
the nine freshmen who received 
half A's. They will be entitled to 
six cuts in each course. 

Twenty seniors made the List, 
14 juniors and 14 sophomores. The 
complete list: 

• - r 

THIRST time we've been to school 
•*■ in the summer. We're looking 
forward to it. Of course, it'll be 
hard to study maybe, with the 
wonderful lazy weather and all — 
but then, some people find it hard 
to study in the winter, don't we? 
Personally, we think the college j 
is doing more than its part in in- j 
stituting summer school, and we ! 
fully intend to take advantage of 
it. Besides, it's a five-day week, 
and think of the week-ends! 
Then, too, we've heard rumors of 
a houseparty. 

s - r 
1I7HETHER these rumors are 
" merely wishful thinking, or 
really plans and intentions, we 
don't know. Perhaps they won't 
let us have one, but anyway, 
we'll try. And the weather! We 
won't have to worry about a cold 
, when we go swimming, like we 
did at Ivy . . . We have heard of 
several hopeful young men who 
have already invited companions 
to the party, although they were 
unable to set the date. We think 
that it will be even better than 
the famous "Prolong Ivy till 
Commencement" movement, which 
a large group was attempting to 
promote a short while ago. 

• - r 

■OUT Commencement is here now, 
*^* and all you seniors won't be 
coming back. Anyway, most of 
you got through before you're 
drafted. And that's, what's worry- 
ing us. We strongly feel that one's 
education should be finished be- 
fore military service. The navy 
feels that way, too, and it looks 
like the army has finally seen the 
; light, too . . . With their help and 
that of the college, it looks like

thought finds its roots in intoler- 
ance or in ignorance or in fear. 
Academic freedom is essential to 
education, and education is essen- 
tial to the democratic state." 

Discussing "The Prospects of 
International Law," Baxter stated: 
"Winston Churchill has said that 
we are fighting this war in order 
that we, not they, may make the 
peace. It is for us, then, to think 
about the kind of peace we are go- 
ing to make. There are many who 
think that such an effort is pre- 
mature, but similiar activity dur- 
ing the last war resulted only in 
an impossible peace treaty and a 
mere twenty-year armistice. Un- 
less we who are here today cru- 
sade for an intelligent and con- 
structive peace; unless we direct 
our part of public opinion in the 
right direction, the inevitable next 
war will destroy our children and 
our grandchildren, raze our homes. 

and perhaps destroy our civiliza- 
tion. It Js with the relation of In- 
ternational Law to this effort that 
I wish to deal at this time. 

"In considering the problem of 
revising International Law, we 
must realize that its premise has 
changed little since the 19th cen- 
tury, while the world has changed 
greatly. One of the most signifi- 
cant and inexorable changes, now 
still going on, is the movement 
from rugged individualism born of 
limitless frontiers and opportuni- 
ties of profitable development of 
natural resources, toward social- 
ism; the movement from emphasis 
on the rights of the individual to 
the diminuation of his rights in 
favor of a more powerful govern- 
ing body in his state. 

"Looking back over the history 
of the world, one is appalled by 
the seeming inevitability of war, 
and by its ever increasing ferocity. 
But it must be remembered and 
realized that the nations of the 
world are progressing slowly to 
wards a more intelligent under 
standing of their relationship to 
,each other. The League was a 
1 faltering step in this direction 
I even though a misguided one. The 
j future of world peace, and per- 
| haps thereby the future of the 
: world itS3lf lies in establishing a 
system which will depart from the 
specious glow of Renaissance in- 
: dividualism and give full cogni- 
i zance to this utter dependability 
j for its very existence of one state 
'upon another. The future of In- 
j ternational Law lies in giving im- 
1 petus to this movement and fi- 
nally in absorbing and successfully 
I governing it according to the prin- 
Iciples of moral and ethical jus- 
| tice."

Thirty-One Freshmen 
To Enter In June 

Whf n Bowdoin opens its sum- 
mer session June 22 there will 
be SI freshmen enrolled to- 
gether with about 380 upper- 
classmen Who have signified 
their intentions of returning. 
This is the largest figure for the 
summer session of any college 
in the state but it is still very 
low and Dr. Edward S. Ham- 
mond, director of admissions, 
has urged that students and 
alumni send to him immediately 
aH names of prospective Bow- 
doin students. 

The remaining members of 
the entering class will enter In 

The prospect of a darker finan- 
cial picture for Bowdoin College 
next year and the necessity of a 
sharp revision of plans for the in- 
stitution's celebration of its 150th 
anniversary in 1944 are foreseen 
by President Kenneth C. M. Sills 
in his annual report, published 
this week and mailed to alumni. 

Although the- College will end 
the present fiscal year with a bal- 
anced budget, there will be much 
greater difficulty in making ends 
meet in 1943, the President inti- 
mates in his report. An antici- 
pated reduction in returns from 
invested funds and a reduced en- 
rollment of students are seen as 
the main causes for a less hopeful 

150th Birthday 

Because the war has put an end 
to all but necessary construction, 
the College will not be able to 
celebrate its sesquicentennial by 
additions to its physical plant, the 
President points out. "We shall 
probably have to be content with 
celebrating our 150th birthday by 
emphasizing the things of the 
spirit, those characteristics, prin- 
ciples, and qualities that really 
count ....," he' writes. 

The faculty will recommend 
that the 11th biennial Bowdoin 
Institute be put over from next 
year to 1944 and that plans be 
made for a "rather unusual" in- 
stitute, the report reveals. 

Students Will Serve 

President Sills reports that the 
second war to occur during his ad- 
ministration - finds the student 
body in a mood of "less flag way- 
ing, less emotionalism, less talk" 
than in 1917. "There is no en- 
thusiasm for war," he writes, but 
'service is accepted as a necessary 
duty, and most students want to 
have opportunity for commissions 
if they think themselves capable 
of leadership." The few religious 
conscientious objectors in the Col- 
lege comprise not more than one 
per cent of the student body. 

President Sills reviews the 
many changes already effected or 
planned under the accelerated pro- 
gram of the College, including the 
first summer session in its his- 
tory, all part of the institution's 
contribution to the war effort. He 
finds certain advantages to fresh- 
men entering the College at the 
beginning of the summer session, 
as well as to students who will be 
enabled to receive their degrees 
before called for military service. 


Gifts and bequests totaling 
$114,813 were made to the College 
during the year ending March 31, 
according to the report. This total 
is only about a third of what it 
was last year. Heading the list is 
the Alumni Income Fund, with a 
total of $27,273. Other large gifts 
are $19,500, from Hoyt A. Moore 
of New York; and $11,775. from 
Frederick W. Pickard, of Wilming- 
ton, Del. Among the bequests are 
$21,326, from the Angle C. Dyson 
Estate, and a scholarship fund of 
$12,500, from the Samuel Clark, 
Jr., Estate. 

President Sills sees a threat to 
the independent college in pro- 
posals now before Congress for 
limitation of bequests and indirect 
taxation of college funds. "... If 
the federal government pursues a 
policy hostile to the colleges now 
independent, there will indeed be 
dark days ahead. The strength of 
our educational system depends so 
largely on the variety of educa- 
tional institutions that weakening 
one type means the weakening of 
the whole structure," Sills de- 

Needs Of The College 

In listing his '"Needs of the Col- 
lege" this year, the President has 
excluded buildings, because of the 
wartime scarcity of building ma- 
terials. He finds, however, that 
there are no priorities on a num- 
ber of other improvements that 
win benefit the College. First on 
his list are funds for a general 
catalogue of alumni; next, funds 
for a publicity office. ("These is 
as yet no priority on reporters." 
he remarks.) Number three on 
the list is a more adequate per- 
sonnel and placement service. 
President Sills lists as the fifth 
need "some new Bowdoin songs; 
there are no priorities on musical 
compositions or lively verses." 

Of 66 students who have left 
college during the current year, 
the largest number, 28, have gone 
into national service; 13 have left 
because of scholastic deficiencies; 
but only 5 for disciplinary rea- 
sons, according to the report of 
Dean Paul Nixon. 

BHS 8th In Standing 

Brunswick High School stood 
eighth this year in the competi- 
tion for the Abraxas Cup, awarded 
annually to the high school whose 
graduates achieve the best scholas- 
tic rating in the freshman class at 
the College. Brunswick has won 
the cup only twice, in 1921 and 

Librarian Gerald G. Wilder re- 
ports a drop in the circulation of 
books at the college library. He 
adds, "The sharp drop in circula- 
tion is pretty nearly universal, 
and no explanation is offered." 
' The President's report was 
printed at the Record Office.

Student Council Appoints 
Twelve To New S.C.D.C. 

1. The Marine Corps will con- 
tinue to offer the opportunity for 
college students to enlist for the

recent bulletin from the Marine 
Corps states:

the Candidates' Class prior to 
reaching their twenty-seventh 
birthday. They are enlisted in the 
Marine Corps Reserve and are 
held on inactive duty status un- 
til completion of their education. 

Should the needs of the service 

require college students to be 
called to active duty prior to 
graduation, six months advance 
notice will be given and require- 
ment of college degrees will be 
waived when Candidates complete 
course of training in the Candi- 
dates' Class.

President Sills had the following 
last minute items of interest to 

William J. Georgitis, '42, has 
been appointed teaching assistant 
in Chemistry for the rest of the 
Summer. Graduating Cum Laude 
last June, he was awarded the 
O'Brien Graduate Scholarship, and 
expects to study Chemistry at the 
University of Michigan this Fall. 

This evening a buffet supper

his father, Senatdr Harold H. Bur- 
ton, '09, by special arrangement. 
Senator Ralph O. Brewster, '09, 
was also present. 

The College administration is 
not yet sure whether to continue 
the Chapel hour at 12 or to ad- 
vance it to 11 a.m. At noon it 
comes at the end of morning 
classes and just before lunch. At 
11 it would find more of the col- 
lege on the campus. President 
Sills would be glad to have under- 
graduate opinion on the matter. 

There will be a meeting of 
members of the Alumni interested 
in the improvement of The Alum- 
nus on July 16 under the direction

Masquers' First Play To Star Town 
Actors; Give Half Proceeds To USO 

According to Professor George H. Quinby, Director of Dramatics, the Masque and 
Gown plans to open the summer season on Friday and Saturday, July 17 and 18, with a farce 
comedy in three acts, Meet the Wife by Lynn Starling. Half the proceeds of the two perform- 
ances will be given to the U.S.O. The cast includes several towns people as well as students. 

The other plans of the Masque! 
and Gown include two three-act j 
plays to be given on August 14* 
and 15 and September 8 and 9 
respectively. As yet, three stu- 
dent-written scripts have been re- 
ceived and two of these are being 
considered for the summer plays. 

No program of student-written 
one acts is to be given during the 
summer "season, but both three- 
and one-act scripts are always 
welcome for consideration. 

Professor Quinby announced 
that all work this summer will be 

based on a cooperative plan. 
That is, one man may act in one 
performance and handle the pub- 
licity for another. 

The cast of Meet the Wife is as 
follows: Gertrude Lennox will be 
played by Mrs. Morgan B. Cush- 
ing, who has appeared in numer- 
ous Masque and Gown productions 
including last year's Tartuffe. 
Professor Stanley P. Chase plays 
the part of Philip Lord. Harvey 
Lennox will be Mr. Robert E. 
Michaud, a local townsman from 
the Cabot mill. His daughter, 

Doris Lennox, will be played by 
Margaret Mitchell, who is a senior 
majoring in speech and English at 
New Rochelle College. Bill Craigie 
'44 and Norton Leach '43 are tak- 
ing the parts of Gregory Brown 
and Victor Staunton. Miss Alice 
Cooper, a sophomore at Rollins 
College, Florida, and a well-known 
personage on the Masque and 
Gown stage, plays the part of the 
maid, Alice. Chandler Schmalz 
'45 plays the part of William and 
is also the stage manager for this

this spring, boosted in a special 
edition of the Orient, netted con- 
tributions totaling $27,564.52 as 
compared with $20,651.45 in 1941,

contributed an average gift of 
$14.91 apiece as compared with 
1,825 giving an average of $11.32 
a year ago. Sale of plates and gifts 
by the alumni office declined from 
$550 in 1941 to $437.70 this year

to $28,002.02 as compared with 
$21,201.45 a year ago. < 

Gifts to the endowment this year 
totaled $5,271.24 contrasted to $2,- 
376.07 last year. The class of 1916 
has the best performance this year, 
surpassing even its signal perform- 
ance last year. Honorable mention 
this year went to 1896 and 1903. 

Tbe Quickest, Surest Way 
YOU Can Help Win This 





Part-time work will be avail- 
able for interested undergraduates 
during the summer session, Dono- 
van D. Lancaster, Director of Stu- 
dent Aid, announced this week. All 
applicants should apply at the 
earliest possible moment at the 
Union office. 

During the past few weeks Mr. 
Lancaster has run a notice in the 
Brunswick Record asking the em- 
ployers in the community to con- 
tact him if they desire student 
workers for afternoon and evening 
jobs. Although the College does 
not advise Freshmen to work the 
first semester, positions will be 
open to them if they feel it ur- 
gent to start earning at once. 

Scholarships for the summer 
have already been awarded, but 
additional aid will be given at the 
beginning of the fall term. 

Many, Freshmen 
Get Scholarships 

Bowdoin this year has awarded 
$8,325 in scholarships to 20 mem- 
bers of the incoming freshman 
class, it was revealed in an an- 
nouncement made here this week. 

Five awards were made as the 
annual State of Maine scholar- 
ships; one award was made from 
the John Johnston Scholarship 
Fund for an able and worthy can- 
didate preferably from rural 
Maine; five awards were made as 
Bowdoin scholarships given an- 
nually to five members of the en- 
tering class who reside outside the 
state of Maine; and nine awards 
were made from the Alumni Fund, 
a certain part of which is set 
aside annually to provide scholar- 
ships for incoming freshmen. The 
number and size of the scholar- 
ships under the latter Fund and 
the selection of the recipients is 
in the hands of a committee of 
which the Dean, the Director of 
Admissions and the chairman of 
the Alumni Fund are members. 

The Bowdoin scholarships, $425 
each, were awarded this year to 
Warren E. Cormack, Lynn, Mass., 
William A. Johnson, Los Angeles, 
Cal., Frank D. Law, Lynn. Mass., 
Charles D. Maguire, .Nashua, N. 
H, and Henry H. Randall 2nd. 
North Conway, N. H. All five will 
enter Bowdoin in September. 

The Alumni Fund scholarships, 
amounting to $400 each this year, 
were awarded to Robert H. Allen, 
Augusta, Theodore J. Capeei, 
Port Chester, N. Y., James T.

President Sills Urges Men , 
Study Or Fight" In Chapel 

Bowdoin College officially opened its first summer session on 
Monday, June 22. The first term will run till July 30. Exams 
will be held July 3 1 and August 1 ; the second term will begin 
August 3 and end September 10. The regular fall semester 
will begin September 24. 

After two weeks of Bowdoin's 
first summer session, undergradu- 
ates appear to have taken up the 
"study or fight" note echoed in 
President Sills* opening chapel 
speech on the first day of summer 
school. The general tenor of stu- 
dent reaction to the summer ses- 
sion has been a serious and a stu- 
dious one, bearing out the Presi- 
dent's opening remarks: "The 
spirit that brings you here in these 
dark and anxious days should be 
that of hard work." 

Sills welcomed the 53 freshmen 
and more than 300 returning up- 
perclassmen, telling them they 
would help the faculty "in a new 
experience and in interesUng edu- 
cational experiments" this sum- 
mer. Discipline, he said, would be 
kindly but firm. The accelerated 
program, he emphasized, has been 
adopted at the suggestion of the 
national government as a part of 
the policy designed to make it 
possible for many of the youth of 
the country to receive a college 
education before they are called to 

The President continued: "That 
means that there should be no 
place here for the loafer or the 
playboy. These are precious -min- 
utes, precious hours; precious 
days. I am confident that the 
great majority of you realize this 
and that beneath all the legiti- 
mate fun and joy of student life

No meals will be served at the 
Moulton Union this summer, 
Donovan I). Lancaster has re- 
vealed. This is in accordance 
with an agreement between the 
College and the fraternities, 
which aims at helping the latter 
to fill their dining clubs. The 
Union cafeteria and grill will, 
however, be* open for occasional 
meals and lunches from seven 
a.m., until twelve p.m. on week 
days, and from nine a-m. to 
twelve p.m. on Sundays. As 
usual student charge accounts 
will be allowed. For alumni, 
parents, and guests of the un- 
dergraduates the sleeping rooms 
on the second floor are ready. 

JIM Dolan, president of the 
Student Council. 


Jim Dolan, Student Council 
prexy. announced this week that a 
hcuseparty would be held this 
summer, probably about the middle 
of the school session. The date has 
not yet been announced but it is 
possible the party may be held the 
Friday and Saturday after the 
close of the first term. 

The Council will make further 
plans for the houseparty this week, 
Dolan said. The Council is on the 
spot, some feel, urging that prepa- 
rations for the party and the se- 
curing of a reputable band be made 
earlier than they were at Ivy. 
With Glenn Miller's band due to 
appear in Lewiston during August, 
many feel that there is a good 
chance to secure a good band this 
summer. Dolan's Council, com- 
posed entirely of athletes, is an 
open target for would-be critics 
who would jump at any short- 

Orient Breaks Down, Shows 
All In T ouching Sob Story 

By Bill Craigie 

Probably the most important thing in College (the editor 
tells you at the Orient smoker) is the Bowdoin Orient. This 
fine sheet, carrying all the news that's fit to print and some that 
the Times wouldn't carry, blazons forth across the campus 
every week or so startling news coverage and well-written col- 
umns and features. Indeed, the Orient does not stop at the 
campus, but is sent out to about one-third of our faithful alum- 
ni, in whose homes and fireplaces it is eagerly devoured. 

Perhaps the question uppermost 
in the minds of all you incoming 
freshmen is: "How can I get on 
the Orient staff," Well, that is 
difficult indeed. Probably thirty 
people each year mention to the 
editor that they have considered 
working on the paper, and from 
then on they are doomed. The edi- 
tor doesn't let them alone for 
their remaining half-dozen years. 
The Orient will take anyone who 
will volunteer, and may even de- 
scend to soliciting. 

But we'llgive you an idea now, 
jjust to prepare you. You see, we 
take the paper from start to fin- 
jish, giving out stories; rewriting; 
! writing heads, make up, and col- 
umns; and setting the type at the 
I print shop. The only thing we 
don't have to do is read it after- 

On Thursday night, at seven 

sharp, the editor for the week ap- 

| pears in the Orient office, carry- 

, ing a bundle of potential stories.

Bowdoin welcomes some fifty fresh- 
men who this summer begin their college 
careers under the threatening shadows of 
war in the first real summer session here. 
Three hundred upperclassmen have re- 
turned to take advantage of the acceler- 
ated program. These undergraduates will 
have many opportunities this summer 
and in their future here. 

We do not hesitate to say that^Bow- 
doin has the best wartime program^of 
any small college that has yet to come to 
our attention. When the crisis reached 
the critical stage on the intercollegiate 
front last January and the administrative 
powers of the different colleges began to 
make plans to accelerate their curricula, 
President Sills of Bowdoin very calmly 
and very wisely named a committee com- 
posed of the best brains of the capable 
faculty to study the matter. After a 
month of discussion, deliberation and 
thought, decisions were reached, plans 
were formulated, changes were made 
and thejiew program was revealed. The 
general /dea was to help undergraduates 
to get their degrees before being called 
into service — and it was decided to ac- 
complish this end by granting degrees to 
students as soon as they had completed 
the necessary .thirty-six semester credits 
inclusive of requirements. 

Semesters have been shortened, work 
has been intensified and a summer session 
has been inaugurated. Each student can 
now feel that Bowdoin will give him his 
degree just as fast as he can do the stipu- 
lated work to get it. Everything is for the 
most part optional and a student mav^r^v ? 
main out of school a semester tii'worlrif 
he wishes, returning to get his degree as 
soon as he can do the work. Class dis- 
tinctions are out for the duration and 
each case is strictly an individual one. 

Most colleges, especially the small 
ones, did likewise but Bowdoin thus far 
see'ms to have been more successful. The 
summer session enrollment is one of the 
largest among small colleges in New 
England. There are indications of a rea- 
sonable degree of undergraduate activ- 
ities here this summer. Bowdoin has pro- 
vided summer scholarships and expanded 
its program of financial aid. The need for 
help during the summer, especially by 
students who regularly work summers to 
earn part of their expenses, has been seen 
and the college has responded with the 
evident good results. That need is still 
present, however, and the financial aid 
program should be expanded if possible 
because of the extent of the accelerated 

The emphasis here has been: "don't 
stay out of school unless it is absolutely 
necessary." Everybody is going about 
his work in full realization of the situa- 
tion and the general tenor is a serious 
one. Things are as nearly normal as they 
can be under the circumstances and ad- 
justments are being made as time goes 

Bowdoin is pacing the small colleges 
of the East with a real wartime program 
and thus far a successful one betiind the 
steady leadership of President Sills. We 

have entered into the spirit of the thing 
as the government has urged. 

This is the college to which we wel- 
come the freshmen this summer. Beyond 
this, we say to the new Bowdoin men 
that you are beginning your college ca- 
reers and the career of each one of you 
will be what you make it. Bowdoin of- 
fers the opportunities, many of them — 
you can take them or leave them if you 
wish. You are here primarily to study 
or you don't belong here. If you don't 
study, you should enlist in the services 
where we feel you can do our country 
more good. This is the sentiment here. 

You, as freshmen, are starting a new 
job; it will require as much time as you 
can give it; stay with your books and 
try to put into the college program as 
much as you want to get out of it. 

Several weeks of hard work are ahead 
of all of us. Time is fast and this summer 
session will soon be over. There is a lot 
to be done and we should not fail in the 
first real summer session of Bowdoin's 
148 years. When the summer is over, let 
it be said that the splendid start was ex- 
ceeded only by the finish. 


The summer term is two weeks of his- 
tory by now. Let's pause a moment and 
take stock of our present position. How 
have things been going? Is this acceler- 
ated education worth while? Docs the 
summer session seem to be a success? 
Granted it may be early to form any defi- 
nite judgments, but some indications 
have been very apparent. 

Certainly if assignment sheets are in- 
dicative of the amount of work expected, 
few men are coasting through their 
courses. A simple arithmetical computa- 
tion shows that we have already covered 
about one month's material of an ordi- 
nary semester with all the quizzes and 
hour exams tossed in for good measure. 
There seems to be a great deal handed 
out — can we take it all in? 

The average student shouldn't have 
too much trouble in covering the actual 
work assigned, but is it sticking with 
him? While previously he had had an 
opportunity to think over a problem for 
several days, he now finds that he must 
master additional subject matter in that 
same period. 

But other than a few possible cases of 
academic indigestion, the summer ses- 
sion seems to meet with general approval. 
» The faculty and the student body are 
cooperating very well. The weather has 
been perfect. The long week-ends have 
been appreciated and taken advantage of 
by the majority of the student body. 

Most important of all, however, up- 
perclassmen see that diploma only a little 

nave been getting anxious lately, but tne 
assurance that course completion is only 
six months away may be enough to ap- 
pease them. Many of us hope so. At any 
rate, this summer session is our best bet, 
and we're all for it. R.L.E. 


As a strong interfraternity council, 
the White Key of recent date has left 
much to be desired. It has confined its 
activity to maintaining intramural ath- 
letic competition — and this summer it „ 
has been very slow in getting the pro- 
gram underway. Attendance of mem- 
bers at meetings has been poor, interest 
in good part has been half-hearted, and 
the organization has been slow to see an 
opportunity and slower to act. The 
White Key seems to be in a rut, failing 
to see that the scope of its activities 
should be broadened. 

The house presidents as a group have 
been much more effective and their ef- 
fectiveness has been recognized by the 
college administration. The White Key 
should be a strong interfraternity coun- 
cil, not a weak assembly of slow athletic 
promoters. It should wake up or fold up. 


Freshman attendance at voluntary 
chapel this summer has been practically 
ml. Never having been under compul- 
sory chapel regulations, freshmen do not 
realize what an integral factor of Bow- 
doin life they are overlooking. The siza- 
ble senior attendance testifies to this. 
Freshmen should attend chapel in greater 
number or attendance should be made 
compulsory for them. 


By Douglas CarmicnacI 

With the formation of the Army 
Enlisted Reserve Corps, discussed 
here last week by Major Edmonds 
of First Corps Area headquarters, 
it looks as though men in colleges 
without R.O.T.C. units will at last 
be alble to finish their education 
and then enter the army ground 
forces instead of being compelled, 
as previously, to enter naval or 
air corps reserve organizations to 
obtain safety from the draft. To 
those of us to whom neither the 
air nor the sea appeals, it is a long- 
awaited step of great importance. 
While the army makes no promises 
of commissions, it at least assures 
us of sufficient deferment to com- 
plete our college courses — unless 
the situation gets really desper- 
ate, in which case we'd all be 
drafted anyway. 

And although the army does not 
promise commissions to those join- 
ing the Enlisted Reserve, their 
seems a very fair chance, if not a 
strong likelihood, of their winning 
them. Papers from the War De- 
partment which we have seen 
make the following statement: 
"The purpose of the enlistment of 
these students by the Army is to 
insure for the Army a future source 
of qualified officer candidates from 
college students, and, to the ex- 
tent necessary to accomplish this 
purpose, to encourage students to 
enroll and continue in college." 

The Army requires no definite 
curriculum to be taken by the En- 
listed Reservist in college. It does, 
however, list five capacities that it 
finds useful which can be develop- 
ed by the colleges. These are: "a 
capacity for clear and accurate ex- 
pression, a capacity for accurate 
mathematical computations on a 
college mathematics level, a basic 
familiarity with some exact science 
having a direct relationship to 
problems of the army, a capacity to 
deal realistically with maps and 
charts, and a capacity to take care 
of oneself physically under all con- 
ditions." Bowdoin „ provides ad- 
mirable facilities for students to 
develop themselves in four of these 
fields, but to date the college seems 
to have paid little or no attention 
to the study of maps and, as Major 
Edmonds emphasized, of terrain. 
Perhaps a course of this sort could 
be organized and given next fall. 
If the ignorance of maps found 
among many elementary history 
students is any criterion, it is sad- 
ly needed. 

a - r 

Major Edmonds' statement that 
the plan does not take accelerated 
programs into account arid that Re- 
servists need not attend summer 
school unless they wish should be 
good news to many. It will release 
some from a heavy financial burden 
and others from s serious nervous 

VARIETY ..... 

President Sills' announcement that Bowdoin professors are 
giving their services this summer without extra compensation 
indicates that there is perhaps more of this thing called "col- 
lege spirit" or esprit de corps than meets the eye. The pro- 
fessors, in turn, are giving out healthy enough daily assign- 
ments to keep Bowdoin .from being the haven for "lazy" stu- 
dents or "playboys".

How To Protect Yourself Against Gas 

The following information on war gases is supplied for general pub- 
lication because of the possibility that they may at some time be used 
by the enemy. If people will remember a" few simple facts, they will 
have no unreasonable fear of this agent. 

I. War gases stay close to the ground, for they are heavier than 
air. To get out of a gassed area, simply walk against the wind or go 

upstair*. < 

II. Gas is irritating and annoying to the eyes, nose, lungs, or to the 
skin, but it is usually harmless if you do not become panicky but 
promptly leave the gas area and cleanse yourself. A soldier must put 
on a mask where it is necessary to remain in the contaminated area, 
but a civilian can go upon the second or third floor and literally ignore 
it if the windows are kept closed. 

III. If the gas should get on your skin, you can prevent it from do- 
ing much harm by sponging it off as quickly as possible with a piece of 
clothing, such as a handkerchief, and applying some neutralizing sub- 
stance, followed by a thorough bath, preferably a shower, with com- 
mon laundry soap and water. 

IV. If you are indoors, stay there with doors and windows closed, and 
go up to the second or third story. Stay out of basements. Turn off 
the air conditioning, and stop up fireplaces and any other large open- 

V. Some gases are spread as oily droplets which blister and burn the 
skin and* eyes. If you are outside when gas is used do not look up. 
Tear off a piece of clothing or use a handkerchief to blot any drops of 
liquid from your skin and throw the contaminated cloth away. Blot ; 
do not rub, as rubbing will spread the liquid. Then go home, if it is 
nearby, or to the nearest place where you can wash immediately with 
soap and water and cleanse yourself in the following manner: 

1. Remove all outer clothing outside the house, since gas can 
be transmitted to others from contaminated clothing. Put it 
preferably in a covered garbage pail. 

2. Apply one of the following household remedies to the part 
of your skin that has been contaminated: Chlorox or similar 
household bleach (for mustard); peroxide of hydrogen (for 
Lewisite); paste or solution of baking soda if you have no 
peroxide or bleach. If you do not know the gas. use both 
peroxide and bleach. Keep bleach and peroxide out of the 
eyes. No not waste time looking for these remedies; bathe im- 

"mcdiately if they are not at hand. 

3. After entering the house, wash the bleach or peroxide from 
hands with laundry soap and water and then wash the face. 

, Remove the underclothing, place it in a covered garbage pail, 
and enter the bathroom. • 

4. Irrigate the eyes with large amounts of lukewarm 2 per- 
cent solution of baking soda (one tablespoonful to a quart of 
water), or else with plain water. Use an ordinary irrigating 
douche bag or an eye irrigator. If you do not have these, let 
plain warm water pour into the eyes from the shower, washing 
them thoroughly. Do not press or rub the eyes. 

5. Lastly, take a shower, using laundry soap and hot water. 

6. If the nose and throat feel irritated, wash them out also 
with baking soda solution. 

7. If your chest feels heavy and oppressed, if you have any 
trouble breathing, or if cigarette smoke becomes distasteful, 
lie down and stay perfectly still until a doctor sees you. 

8. If blisters develop, be careful not to break them, and call 
a doctor. 


Soldiers require gas masks because they must remain in the con- 
taminated area. Civilians can get out of the gassed area or get above 
the level of the gas, where they do not need gas masks or protective 

Injured persons, who are gassed, require decontamination before they 
can be admitted to hospitals. All other civilians can best prevent any 
serious injury by promtly helping themselves in the manner out- 
lined, using a kitchen of bathroom, laundry soap and water, and a few 
materials found in every household.

"Men aged 18 to 26 inclusive 
who are at the time of their en- 
listment enrolled as full-time un- 
dergraduate students in accredited 
colleges may be enlisted as pri- 
vates in the Air Force Enlisted

Freshmen may continue through 
their Freshman, Sophomore, 
Junior and Senior years. All years 
shall be considered as being the 
period required to complete the 
full college course of that year. 

The applicant's status as a stu- 
dent must be certified by the 
proper official of his college, and 
he must at all times maintain a 
satisfactory scholastic standing. 
Students on temporary leave of 
absence may be certified. 

While it is not planned that 
students enlisted on a deferred 
basis will be needed before the end 
of the period provided in the De-

White Key Will Sponsor 
Fraternity Bali Series 

In the last meeting of the White 
Key it was announced, that the 
softball series of last spring was 
won by Delta Upsilon. This sum- 
mer a series of softball games is 
the only interfraternity athletic 
activity planned. The playoffs of 
the series will be played during the 
week of August 31. A committee 
of three was elected by members 
of White Key to arrange the soft- 
ball schedule and to insure its 
functioning smoothly. With Ros- 
coe C. Ingalls in charge, the com- 
mittee ifc also composed of David 
A. James and Benjamin Pierce. 

The results of the softball game 
as to date: A.D., 10— Chi Psi, 3; 
Kappa Sigma defaulted to Psi U.; 
Betas, 5— T.D., 1; Psi U., 5 — 
Sigma Nu, 3\ tbe DU— Psi U game

Stating that faculty members 
are serving without compensation 
this summer, Sills made the fol- 
lowing faculty announcements: 
Charles Farley, instructor in his- 
tory, is daily expecting call to ser- 
vice; Roy Wiggin, instructor in 
Romance languages, has been in-

Play Western Maine League 

According to Coach Linn Wells 
the College has this summer one 
of the best baseball -teams in its 
history, but as yet there are no 
games definitely scheduled. Bow- 
doin seems to be the only Maine 
college having an organized team. 

At present seven Bowdoin men 
are playing on teams in the West- 
ern Maine League, which com- 
prises such teams as the Cabot 
Mill, Titus Drug and South Port- 
land Shipyard teams, made up of 
semi-pro players. Since these 
Bowdoin players are doing their 
part to justify the existence of 
the League this * Summer, it is 
hoped that the Bowdoin College 
team will l)e allowed to play non- 
league games with some of these 

Coach Wells was invited to un- 
dertake the managership of the 
Titus Drug team, but refused be- 
cause of his college commitments. 

:On his suggestion, however, the 

i job went to Jim Dolan. who has 

i been doing pretty well since his

What Should You Save To Help? 

WASHINGTON, D. C— The following table issued by the Treasury 
Department is intended ds a savings yardstick for the average income- 
earner. It suggests how everyone of the 48,000,000 
employed persons in the United States may partici- 
pate in the war effort through the systematic purchase 
of Defense Savings Bonds. 

"The job ahead of us is far bigger than most* of us 
realize," Secretary Morgenthau declared in making 
the table public "I know that the American people 
are ready to do their part to win the war. One of the 
ways we can do much more is by intensifying our 
effort in the purchase of Defense Bonds." 

While persons without dependents may be able to 
set aside more than the suggested figures, persons 
with several dependents, or with other heavy family 
obligations, may be unable to save at the suggested 
rate, the Treasury Department pointed out

men a soldier was travelling to-

ago. Years before he had, upon 
leaving tht place, lost contact 
with his widowed mother. The 
train was to stop there only ten 
minutes. The soldier went to his 
commanding officer. 'I'd give any- 
thing to see my mother,' he said. 

"The officer promptly wired the

as happy as they appear? 

With no Saturday classes, and 
apparently unhampered by the 
gasoline shortage, we see that stu- 
dents are making the regular 
week-end migration off campus 
. . . Incidentally, the "gas" short- 
age has only added a half hour to 
the Boston hitch-hike run . . . 
With a summer session for the 
first in its history, Bowdoin had 
to put its building crew to work 
making screens for dorm windows

the group of "brisk blades" who 
took Spanish One this summer for 
a pipe course only to be told that 
they were sadly mistaken. 

Welcome to the fifty odd (take 
it how you will) freshmen who 
have join our summer ranks! 
President Sills pointed out that 
since the class of '46 can graduate

Mrs. Cushing Stars In 
Masque And Gown Play 

Some seasons since, Broadway folk nightly accepted an 
invitation to MEET THE WIFE, then, visibly weakened, 
picked themselves out of the aisles to stagger home broad- 
casting their pleasure over the encounter. 

Last Friday and Saturday, 
several parasangs from Manhat- 
tan, Brunswick folk hied them- 
selves to Mem Hall in response to 
a similar invitation issued by Pat 
Q u i n b y and his Town and 
Gowners. Lame from like reac- 
tion the locals limped home and 
are reliably reported to be happy 
about the whole thing. 

If you didn't "Meet The Wife,'' 
you missed something. Wotta 
wife! Amy Cushing barged 
through those hundred or more 
sides while we clung to ours. She 
gave uS Mrs. Harvey Lennox (two 
n's, if you know when you're well 
off), in a fashion that afforded 
convincing support to the claim of 
many, — that the present and fu- 
ture of our National Theater is in 
the non-professional groups. And 
now that groups have been men- 
tioned, there were others in the 
play, — seven of them — able per- 
formers, too, even if Mr. Starling 
did cast them as more or less 
voluble foils. 

Mr. Michaud, a promising new- 
comer to local productions and 

Stanley Chase, retreading the 
boards after much too long an ab- 
sence, portrayed in delightful 
fashion the long- and not-so-long- 
suffering husbands. Although his 
difficult role was a bit under- 
spoken at times and a trifle over 
played (perhaps by direction), 
Norman Leach revealed himself 
the trouper he is. Margaret Mit- 
chell and William Craigie carried 
convincingly the young love inter- 
est while Alice Cooper and Chan- 
dler Schmalz applied obvious tal- 
ent to minor roles. 

Production should take a bow. 
One never ceases to marvel at 
what those crews do with our 
mausoleum. Noteworthy lighting 
was a feature of the attractive 
single setting— effective staging 

The first presentation of the 
first summer season points to 
success for Pat's campus-com- 
munity policy. And USO profited 
measurably also.

ORIENT Finds Cupcake 
Situation Serious 

The price of cupcakes at the 
Moulton Union has been 
doubled. It was announced this 
week. Cupcakes have been a 
favorite snack and formerly 
sold at two for a nickte — the 
current price is five cents each. 
Many feel that the doubling of 
the price is unwarranted and 
the Cupcake Club is reported 
planning a crusade for a "three 
for a dime" price. 

N» price ceiling on the tasty 
pastry has yet been announced.

Old Witan Comes To Life 
In Barn Chamber Meeting 

The reorganized Witan held its first meeting in the Barn 
Chamber a week ago Tuesday at which time the future policy 
of the literary society was oudined, and officers were elected. 
Donald A. Sears '44 read a paper to the club on "Writers in 
Exile." Sears discussed the influx of German exile writers in 
this country, stating that the German writers were representa- 
tive of the large group of European literary people who have 
fled to America. 

At the meeting John, Jaques '43 
was elected Chairman of the club, 
and Crawford B. Thayer '44 was 
elected Secretary. Professor Stan- 
ley P. Chase was elected as Fac- 
ulty Adviser. Their offices will run 
until September. Witan is an 
Anglo-Saxon word meaning "wise 
men," and the Bowdoin organiza- 
tion was rejuvinated to 'partially 
offset the loss of English major re- 
quirements. English majors of the 
upper two classes comprise the 
nucleus of the organization, but 
guests may be invited to individual 

The second meeting of the club 

was held at 7.30 last night at the 

Kappa Sigma house at which time 
Howard L Huff '43 read a paper 
on Thomas Wolfe. It is the policy 
of the group to hold its meetings at 
various fraternity houses, and pa- 
pers on literary topics are present- 
ed by selected undergraduates. The 
club will meet again in two weeks, 
at a place to be announced. Al- 
though membership is generally re- 
stricted to English majors of the 
upper classes, undergraduates in- 
terested in becoming regular mem- 
bers should contact the member- 
ship committee made up of Stanley 
Cressey, Joseph E. Brown III, and

ments for two lectures for next 
fall and winter. 

The first of these will be on 
November 19, 1942, by Mr. Ed- 
ward Weeks. Weeks has been edi- 
tor of the "Atlantic Monthly" 
since 1938, and he was awarded 
the Croix de Guerre in the first 
World War. His essays and book 
reviews have appeared in many 
magazines, and he received much 
notice for his book "This Trade 
of Writing." 

On January 7, 1943, Thomas R. 
Ybarra, author of last winter's 
best selling autobiography "The 
Young Man From Caracas," will 
be at Bowdoin. Ybarra, as well as 
being on the staff of "Colliers" 
and of the "New York Times," 
was, in 1939, a news commentator 
for the National Broadcasting 
Company. Other books by Ybarra

Brinkler Concert July 29 


On Wednesday, July 29 Alfred 
Brinkler, one time instructor of 
music at Bowdoin, will play in 
Bowdoin's chapel for the first time 
in two years. Dr. Brinkler is the 
municipal organist of Portland 
and also the organist of the Epis- 
copal Cathedral in that city. He is 
director of the Portland Philhar- 
monic Choir. 

Dr. Brinkler's program will in- 
clude a scherzo, by Oakley. This 
is of particular interest because 
the composer dedicated the manu- 
script to Dr. Brinkler. He will 
also play a suite by Corel I i. 

Professor Tillotson explained 
that it was Dr. Brinkler who. dur- 
ing his term from the winter of 
1935 through the spring of 1936, 
started the inter-fraternity sing- 
ing contest. He donated the Wass 
cup given to the victorious frater- 
nity in this vocal battle. This con- 
cert on the 29th. the first of two 
this summer, will be the first he 
has given here since the fall of 
1939. His program on Wednesday 
will be: *T

Last Thursday, July 16, an un- 
official and informal meeting of 
the "Alumnus" Board was called 
by Seward J. Marsh, the Alumni 
Secretary of the College. The meet- 
ing began at eleven o'clock and 
lasted through the lunch hour and 
well into the afternoon. 

Strictly speaking, this meeting 
was merely a discussion group of 
people interested in the "Alum- 
nus." Out of the discussion came 
certain recommendations concern- 
ing the size, content, and circula- 
tion of the "Alumnus." 

Mr. Donald W. Philbrick '17, 
chairman of the Board of Directors 
of the Alumni Fund, presided at 
the meeting. Among the eighteen 
members present were: President 
Sills; several members of the 
Board of Overseers: Clement F. 
Robinson '03, Vice-President, John 
Frost 04, Harry L. Palmer '04, and 
Paul Niven '16; and Alumni Coun- 
cil members: Professor Chase, Pro- 
fessor Hartman, Curtis Matthews

Glenn R. Mclntire '25, and Alden 
Sawyer '27.

'43, President of S.C.D.C. 


By proclamation, President 
Sills has suspended the activi- 
ties of the S.C.D.C for the sum- 
mer session. A faculty commit- 
tee is investigating the S.C.D. 
C'c activities relative to cutting 
a freshman's hair Illegally last 
week for alleged violation of 
freshmen rules. 

Sills summoned the S.C.D.C. 
to meet with him last Friday at 
which time the matter waa dis- 
cussed. Sills announced this 
week that haircutting will

Second Union 
Dance To Be 
Saturday 25 

Dick Hyde, chairman of 
the Union Board, has an- 
nounced that there will be 
a dance at the Moulton Un- 
ion on Saturday, July 
twenty-fifth This dance 
is to be run in the same 
way as the last dance. Navy 
men are invited to come and 
share the fun. The dance 
will run from eight o'clock 
until twelve. There is no' ad- 
mission charge. Bill McLel- 
lan will be in charge of this 

Band Will Be Announced 
Soon By Student Council 

With only the assurance needed that a sizable number of 
undergraduates will attend, plans are proceeding for Bow- 
doin's first summer houseparty on Friday and Saturday, Au- 
gust 7 and 8. Polls will be taken at the fraternity houses to- 
night to determine the number who plan to attend. The house- 
party, coming in a brief moment of relaxation during the in- 
tensified summer session, will be a greatly curtailed one with 
all lavish expenditures "out the window." College rules regard- 
ing liquor at the houseparty have been tightened and will be 
strictly enforced. 

Men Of Naval Radio School 
Do Much In 8-Hour Day 

This is a war of knowledge and science as well as brute manpower. It calls for skilled 
technicians in almost evecy field of science. Bowdoin College, in common with many oth- 
er schools of higher learning, is host to a part of the armed forces receiving specialized in- 
struction for war duty. 

Bowdoin's contribution is that of furnishing the facil- 
ities for a background in radio engineering for a select group 
of Navy officers. All details, of course, are secret.

But it's no secret that the Navy 
School, operated entirely apart 
from the College, is headed by 
Bowdoin's Dr. Noel C. Little, now 
a Lieutenant-Commander in the 
Navy. His executive assistant is 
Lieutenant C. A. Smith. 

The Navy men obtain their 
training in a rigorous schedule 
that calls for eight hours of class- 
es each day. Practical laboratory 
experience is had, as well as li- 
brary research and homework that 
goes with the usual college educa- 
tion, according to the men. All of 
the men have had considerable 
training and experience prior to 
coming here, but most of them 
have been recently commissioned 
as officers and have not seen sea 
duty as yet. 

The courses? Well, anyone 
eavesdropping on the campus can 
hear a lot said about "electronics," 
"vacuum tubes," "electrostatics," 
"circuits" and a score of mysteri- 
ous-sounding terms apparently 
connected with radio. It appears, 
too, that mathematics — analytics 
and ^calculus, and even the lowly 
algebra — enters into the training. 

The men come from all parts of 
the country. It is quite evident 
from the mixture of southern ac- 
cents, western drawls, and all the 
rest — not to mention the variety 
of automobile license plates, as an- 
other means of obvious identifica- 

Some southerners among them 

have been heard to express a dis- 
like for our "cold" summer weath- 
er and unpredictable showers; oth- ' 
ers, perhaps from Washington or 
comparable torrid spots, are loud 
in their praise of Maine as a vaca- 
tionland. All have a kind word for 
the friendly attitude of Bowdoin 
and Brunswick in inviting them to 
participate in local activities. 

Although all the men are receiv- 
ing identical training, there is | 
considerable variance in Naval ; 
ranks among them. Most are En- ! 
signs (one gold bar — and the star, ' 
which identifies a "line officer" in 
contrast to other insignia which 
identify supply and medical offic- 
ers, chaplains, etc., who are "staff 
officers"). A considerable number 
are junior grade. Lieutenants (one 
and one-half bars); and a few are 
full Lieutenants (two bars), the 
equivalent of a Captain in the I 

The uniform most commonly ■ 

seen on the campus is the khaki j

The Student Council dance com- 
mittee is in charge of the house- 
party and is already busy making 
plans and seeking a band. 
• The houseparty and dances in 
the gym and the houses will be 
open to members of the naval re- 
serve school here but President 
Sills emphasized that the festivi- 
ties will not be open to other out- 
siders as has occasionally been the 
case in the past. 

President Sills, meeting Monday 
with Council members and frater- 
nity presidents, agreed that the 
drinking problem must be closely 
watched this summer because of 
the seriousness of the times, the 
houses being open with more peo- 
ple in Brunswick during the sum- 
mer, and the desirability of avoid- 
ing any "incidents" at this time. 
It was agreed that all drinking 
will be confined to fraternity bars 
and that fraternity presidents are 
being held responsible to enforce 
this ruling. Any evidence of pub- 
lic intoxication will be dealt with 
very severely, Sills emphasized. 

President Sills, when inter- 
viewed by the Orient, emphasized 
that there .must be no interfer- 
ence with the regular schedule of 
classes. This means that there 
must be no cutting of classes on 
the days preceding and following 
the rejoicing. • 

As intimated above, the week- 

end will not be lengthened in 
honor of the occasion. Students' 
guests will be allowed to arrive 
no earlier than 2 o'clock Friday 
afternoon and are to leave by Sun- 
day afternoon. This is in accord 
with regular houseparty proce- 

Professors Daggett, H. Brown, 
and Hammond have been appointed 
by President Sills to have the 
complete faculty charge over the 

In order to ascertain whether a 
houseparty will be a financial pos- 
sibility, a survey of all students 
will be taken tonight to determine 
how many students will attend.

Many of those students now 
bemoaning the strain of callis-

that William J. Georgitis '42 this 
spring in a letter to the Orient 
urged that faculty members 
should set an example for under- 
graduates by taking part in cal- 
listhenics. Said Mr. Georgitis Is

which $93.50 was turned over to

Carmichael started work on the 
play last year and rewrote it late 
this spring. Originally requiring 
two scenes, it has been rewritten 
during the last ten days so that 
one setting will suffice.

With this production, combining 
the talents of town, Faculty, and 
student body, the Masque and 
Gown has initiated a policy of co- 
operative endeavor to serve the 
community rather than to limit its 
activities to the student body. 

Next Play Written by Student 

The next play of the Masque and 
Gown's season will be "Shepherd 
of My People," a three-act play by 
Douglas Carmichael '44 written in 
defense of the owner's position in 
the labor situation. Although there 
is an under-plot dealing with the 
love of the leading character for a 
girl, the principal plot involves the 
conflict between the leading char-

As the second in a series of sum- 
mer concerts, members of the 
Bowdoin student body and faculty, 
as well as members of the com- 
munity of Brunswick, heard, on 
July 14, a brilliant recital given 
in the Moulton Union by the young 
tenor, Richard Hagopian. 

A former student of the New 
England Conservatory of Music, 
Mr. Hagopian has enjoyed, to date, 
a brief but extensive career. A 
young man of but 26 years, he has 
made appearances in such places 
as the South and Arlington Street 
churches in Boston, as well as in a 
number of the major concert halls 
on the West Coast. A man of 
significant versatility, Mr. Hago- 
pian's literary abilities are exem- 
plified by his short story work, 
which includes Saroya n-1 i k e 
sketches of Armenia folkishness 
set against the melting-pot envi- 
ronment of the U. S. A. 

The evening's program included 
selections by German, Italian and 
English composers. Especially no- 
table was the first group of three 
17th Century Italian songs. Mc 
Hagopian's interpretation of Scar- 
latti's, O cessate di piagarmi, a 
number in this group was one of 
the high spots of the evening. Al- 
so of note was his rendition of 
the first encore, an Armenian 
folksong entitled Hie Swallow. 
Though the young tenor was 
slightly handicapped by a rather 
limited vocal range, he more than 
compensated for this with an ex- 
tremely musical voice, a keen 
sense of phrasing and diction in all 
three languages, and an appealing 
stage personality. 

The concert's program was as

By James R. Hlggins 

LAST week, because of the rath- 
er unhealthy consequences of 

the most recent meeting of the 
Student Council Disciplinary Com- 
mittee, the administration of the 
college saw fit to suspend all ac- 
tivities of that body until further 
notice. The discussion of this ac- 
tion and its causes may at first 
seem rather petty in view of the 
immense problems to be consid- 
ered as the result of the War, but 
on the other hand, if we are neith- 
er willing nor able to face our 
smaller difficulties at home, how 
can we ever hope to cope adequate- 
ly with the great controversial is- 
sues of the present world conflict ? 

PERHAPS we are waving the 
flag too vigorously in saying 
that, had those Individuals in- 
volved in the current S.C.D.C. 
episode been truly aware of the 
vulnerable position of the col- 
lege boy during wartime, last 
week's incident would never 
have occurred. There was ab- 
solutely no valid reason for 
either the infringement of fresh- 
men rules or the extensive 
abuse of authority by the 
S.C.D.C. The Committee had a 
perfect right to demand explana- 
tion and carry out approved pun- 
ishment for the breaking of the 
established rules. No one has any 
argument on this side of the 
matter. But /the facts of the case 
show that not only was the 
S.C.D.C. acting without its full 
membership present but also 
without the supervision of its 
Student Council advisor. The 
gravity of the situation is evi- 
denced in the fact that indirect- 
ly the action of the S.C.D.C. con- 
tributed t* the withdrawal of a 
freshman from college. 

s - r 

r PHE close supervision of the 
•*• Committee's activities by the 
Student Council must never be dis- 
regarded. It is only too clear that 
those who have but recently been 
subject to freshmen regulations 
show a marked tendency towards 
indiscretion in enforcing these 
same rules when they are put in a 
position to do so. 
s - r 
rpHE S.C.D.C. should not be dis- 
■*• banded permanently. Over 
a period of years it has carried 
out Its functions fairly satisfac- 
torily. The present instance, 
however, should be a warning to 
that body. Power delegated by 
the many to the few can never 
be abused without certain detri- 
mental consequences. This is one 
sjf the principles of our demo- 
cratic way of life; it holds true 
in both state and national gov- 
ernment, and it is such princi- 
ples for which we and others 
like us are fighting today. If we 
fall to use such instruments of 
s« If -government within their 
definitive limits, we shall not be 
able to use them at all.

Recently there have been oumerotos 
complaints and criticisms about the pol- 
icy of the college towards restricting cer- 
tain rules and regulations, that have pre- 
viously been part of the traditional Bow- 
doin life. At first glance it seems that 
these restrictions are being levied for no 
particular reason. Undergraduates find it 
hard to reconcile their application to the 
customary routine of college. What's 

Doesn't this friction suggest that per- 
haps we are all out of stride with the 
time? Let's look around. Are our parents 
living the same sort of lives that they 
were a year ago? Is dad carrying on bus- 
iness as usual? Doesn't it seem reasonable 
that these new curtailments may be ad- 
ministered for a purpose — perhaps in an 
effort to adjust college to the universal 
change caused by the war time. 

As a matter of fact, many people back 
home are watching the "college kids" 
rather skeptically. They find it hard to 
justify our position here in the lee of the 
storm while their sons are bivouacked tn 
northern Ireland, Australia, Egypt. If 
we make a wrong step here while they 
are looking on, it might eventually call 
for real regulation — strict regulation. 
Home town editors have suggested that 
we are living on "borrowed time," and it 
may well be that these loans will be 
called in if the returns don't seem to be 

Thus these steps are being made to 
demonstrate that we are sincerely trying 
to make the best of our time lo»n, and 
that we are conscious of our duty while 
here in college. Traditions and social 

forget about it for awhile. Let's not 
spend all our time planning for it, what 
well do, where we'll go, how we'll get 
there. Instead, let's apply ourselves to 
our work around here (there's plenty of 
it for evetyone) and get that dome, and 
done right, and then concent ra te on the 

The college has done its part in al- 
lowing us to have the houseparty — let's 
do our part. After all, the primary pur- 
pose of college is to learn, and let's not 
forget that purpose as we have done so 
often in the past. There's a time and 
place for everything — houseparty time 
is August 6th and 7th. In the mean- 
time, till that date {and after it) there's 
a time for study. 

The program is accelerated, as we 
have found oat. We all thought that 
only two subjects wouldn't fee so bad, 
that there'd be plenty of time. But we 
have found out that those subjects take 
more time than we thought, especially 
when we spend a good deal of time in 
loafing. If we concentrate on our studies 
in this time before exams and house- 
parties, we wffl clear them up in such a 
way that we wiH be able to relax and en- 
joy ourselves then. 

Everyone knows that a person enjoys 
himself more with a free mind than when 
he's worried. So, let's apply ourselves 
now to our studies, and later to house- 
parties. We'll enjoy them more.

j Yes, there are lots of summer activ- 
ities besides lying in the sun and going 
on week ends. Of course, these are very 
enjoyable and we all have to have our 
share, but there should be a limit. If we 
don't have enough to do with our study- 
ing, and there's a lot of that, then the 
college has provided entertainment and 
work enough for all of us. 

Let's not loaf when we're through 
studying. Let's get into the swing of ac- 
tivities here at Bowdoin. There's the 
Masque and Gown — they're doing three 
plays this season — why not try out, ac- 
tor, properties, writer? On Monday 
nights there's tibe Sing at the Union. 
There's interfraterroty Softball. There's 
any number of things we can do, and 
they're all fua. They're also instructive, 
and will help «s in contacts later. The 
college has done its part in providing 
numerous activities, and it's up to us to 
take part in them. Besides, it's fun. 



President Sifls is going to bat for the 
Bowdoin student body. He has an- 
nounced that he is seeking a cottage and 
land near the shore somewhere in this

porarily if we are to fall in line with this jof l &ih swimming aridsWre pnvikges of 

the Brunswick region this summer. The 

new life. Even the academic program 
may be restricted to some degree because 
of the acceleration complications, but the 
work is here to do and it's up to us to do 

Let's carry on our own business as 
normally as possible, but at the same time 
keep in step with the national trend. 
Naturally adjustments may have to be 
be made to meet the tremendous changes. 
It's up to us to do the best we can to 
complete our liberal arts education and 
at the same time to accept these restric- 
tions as our part in this new We. We're 
on trial, Let's carry on with business as 
usual as long as we can do it justifiably. 



Last week, President Sifls by procla- 
mation temporarily put the S.C.D.C 
"out of business." Although their cause 
may well have been a legitimate one, a 
handful of overzealous and over-enthusi- 
astic S.C.D.C. members took things into 
their own hands and carried out the 
"business of the day" in unofficial and 
disorganized fashion. They obviously 
were victims of a bad case of "sopho- 
moritis" and President Sifts did well in 
putting them "out of business." Let tins 
be a lesson to the wild, self-styled pdKce- 
raen concerned — they have given them- 
selves a well-deserved blackeye. 


Now that we've been promised a 
houseparty, let's get our dates and then 

idea is a wise and a thoughtf ul one and 
will be welcomed by all undergraduates. 
Colby's Outing Club is enjoying similar 
privileges near Watervitte this summer 
and Bowdoin could well do likewise. 

The President has inquired about the 
old Bowdoin Outing Club. Why 
wouldn't this be a good revival hour? 
The President is seeking also to learn if 
there is sufficient demand for his acquir- 
ing a shore clubhouse for Bowdoin stu- 
dents this summer, h would appear that 
. undergraduates are all for the idea but 
they should bring their enthusiasm to the 
attention of the President who is ready 
to act if there is a demand and if he can 
secure the shore property. 


This spring's Alumni Fund drive was 
another big success. More than 1800 loy- 
al Bowdoin alumni gave more than $27,- 
000 to the fund this year, almost $7,000 
more than a year ago. This year's aver- 
age gift was more than three dollars high- 
er than it was in 1941 when it was 
$11.32. Here is a splendid performance 
by Bowdoin alumni who have answered 
the wartime call of their alma mater. 

Commendation is in order for Seward 
J. Marsh, alumni secretary, and the di- 
rectors of trje Alumni Fund. Together 
they engineered a big drive successfully. 
Abo 1 it's hats off to the alumni contrib- 
utors who surpassed their fine perform-

. . . «r at least aix or seven aw 
bees of wfcat was onoe the S.C.DjT. 
banned by their self-appointed 
Chief Inquisitor, faamaw (Jndge 
Hawthorne) Bartlett, these few- 
have set up something enCtoufc/ 
new and different, but definitely 
net refreshing. — On the contrary 

Brunswick Inquisition at whose 
name all Cod -fearing people trem- 
ble as if palsied . . . like run I 

S.C.D.C.'s of past years have 
been, on the whole, just. But this 
one, or rather the part of it to 
which I am referring, takes the 
proverbial cake, with large, lusci- 
ous, and equally proverbial heaps 
of raapberrieR on it. Its motto 
runs somewhat thusly. "Perhaps 
we can only get him on a techni- 
cality, but if we let him go we 
shall lose our prestige." — There 
always was a warm spot in my 
heart for such conceited, vicious, 
htfantfle groups . . . about as warm 
as the combustion temperature of 
a fifty caliber machine gun shell. 
— Isn't it well past time that we 
thought aboul growing up. and 
forgetting the high school big- 
shots of old. I was under the im- 
pression that the S.C.DjC existed 
fe>r repressing that sort of beha- 
vior in Freshmen. 

But now, My Lord Bartlett and 
sheep, let us get to our muttons, 
before, to steal a phrase, they are 
extremclj cold lamb. Last 
Wednesday night you held a meet- 
ing upon the head of a certain 
Freshman. To get off to a good 
start the meeting was begun in 
the absence not only of a number 
of the Sophomore members, but 
also the President, without whom 
or his representative, according to 
the by-laws, there can be no meet- 
ing held. 

This done . the jolly slaughter 
was on. Outsiders were admitted: 

considerable doubt was made evi- 
dent, yet there was no attempt, 
as in previous years, to call a halt 
and reeheck the so-called wit- 
nesses, (and by-theJby what "was 
that ugly rumor that some of 
these weae Freshmen?)— There 
remains the technicality. The un- 
fortunate, who had already and 
quite deservedly had a haircut, 
was this time seen riding into 
town with a friend who had 
brought him back to Brunswick. 
In the car also was a town girl 
with whom the Freshman had no 
other connection than that of "be- 
ing in the same automobile. 

However the Bartlett and com- 
pany axe struck, quivering with 
righteous indignation, neatly 
splitting the sorely tried hair. 
They held that he should have 
got out of tne car and walked in- 
to town in order to avoid the con- 
tinued proximity of the girl. — So 
he "got the works." — But accord- 
ing to one, John Cauhleld. Bart- 
lett's roommate, and not a mem- 
ber of the S.C.D.C, it had been 
decided beforehand that the ac- 
cused should be so dealt with. — 
Therefore the assurances given, at 
the start, to his house representa- 
tive were just so much eyewash. 

I hope those gentlemen, the 
small group in question, are proud 
of themselves. The Freshman, Lu- 
c»en Carr, has left College, with 
what high opinion of, and possible 
advertisement for it they can, per- 
haps, imagine. — All we need now 
is a Junior Class S.C.DiC to deal 
with Sophomore, Rah-Rah! !, Joe- 
College antics.

Polar Bears Win And Tie 
In First Two Encounters 

By F. 

Coach Linn Wells' battling Polar Bear baseball nine, with 
a victory and a tic to its credit in two starts tnis summer, will 
be out to make it two in a row over the Lisbon Falls Braves 
when the two teams meet in a. twilight tik on Pickard field. 
Friday evening at 6.15. "With three White regulars playing 
regtriarly for the Portland Titus team and four others playing 
with the Brunswick Cabots, it is possible that Bowdoin may 
not be at full strength — but only Friday will tell. 

Fighting Billy Muir wifl be doing the catching with Will 
Small, Dick Johnstone, Sid Chason and Benjy Pierce compris- 
ing the infield. Brad Briggs, Bob DeKalb, Walt Finnagan and 
Jack Craven will be ready for outfield duty. Wells can choose 
from four capable pitchers for mound duty: Lloyd Knight, 
Bob Shanahan, Johnny Woodcock and Herb Babcock. 

Coach linn WeHs, who is piloting our first summer var 
sity ,nine, says that he hopes to have at least one or two games 
a week on the schedule through the summer for his boys. In 
all probability mo6t of the game6 this summer will be played 
with the various army camps in this vicinity, as many of the 
collegiate teams are not functioning. 

Orient Poll Reveals 
Student Enthusiasm 

The results of the Orient poll 
of student opinion on required 
callisthenics should he taken 
with a grain of salt by the pow- 
ers that be. An overwhelmingly 
plurality cast a sickly glance at 
the program and suggested the 
discontinuance of the whole set- 
up. On the other side of the 
fence, an unholy thirteen voted 
for a five day a week plan. These 
exercise-minded hoys were hack- 
ed by a couple dozen exponents 
of the status quo. Net results of 
the Orient findings on this all- 
important phase of academic life 
are to date nil. 

Up to the present time the 
Polar Bears have stood up re- 
markably .well under the summer 
heat by turning out "faithfully to 
practice on Pickard Field every 
afternoon. Taking advantage of 
the cooler evenings, the Bowdoin 
men have held their ground 
against their first two opponents, 
LJbson Falls and Fort McKiriley. 
the scores being respectively 1-0 
and 1-1. 

In rhe Fort MeKrnloy game, 
Bowdoin start(>d out very slowly 
with its playing marred by sev- 
eral errors. As the game prog- 
ressed, (he home team settled 
down ami began to roll. Before 
the last man was out, every mem- 
ber of our infield had pulled at 
least one outstanding play, and 
the game ended in a deadlock.

Last year the national quota 
was fourteen million dollars but 
will be boosted this year to

county by exceeding the quota of 
$1,520 by $1,180. A welcome lift

The results of the meeting be-

presidents, and President Sills re- 
vealed that there will definitely 
be several radical changes in 
houseparty policies. It is proba- , 
ble that the affair will be semi- 
formal; it is also expected that ' 
corsages will be abandoned in 
keeping with the economy of the 
times. Gym decorations, it was 
decided will be very simple. 

It was also revealed at the 
meeting that a band is being 
sought for in Boston and that no 
more than $500 will be spent on 
the musical entertainment. Tick- 
ets will cost five dollars per couple 
with no dance programs.

attack on the White Key, we feel 
that this non-constructive criticism 
was based largely on ignorance of 
the functions and duties of the 
White 'Key. There are certain un- 
spectacular functions which the 
organization must perform, and 
these duties have been carried out. 
For the White- Key to function as 
an interfraternity 'board, which is 
our present purpose, we need the 
i cooperation of the fraternities. We 
feel that since the White Key is 
the only organization having equal 
representation from each fratern- 
ity and the Thorndike Club, it 
should be used to advantage by 
these groups and by the student 

Activity per se by an organiza- 
tion is futile -activity should be 
constructive. We sincerely feel 
that our functions have been car- 
ried out and that the White Key 
has fulfilled its obligations as a 
necessary group. With outside ac- 
tivity now greatly curtailed, how- 
ever, and with fraternity problems 
now more pressing than usual, the 
importance of the organization as 
an interfraternity council is tiow 
more than ever : increased. The 
present White Key is attempting 
to broaden its scope to include all 
interfraternity matters. In line 
with this aim we will gratefully re- 
ceive constructive criticism and 
ideas. Give them to your White Key 

Sincerely yours, 

G. M. LORD, 

for the White Key.

than last semester. This semester, as last, the Navy* is com- 
peting in the series also. Playoffs will be held on August 31.

that there are too few under-

Some of the smartest tans ever to be seen in this section 
are being sported by members of the Summer Session Study 

It seems that a great deal of academic investigating is be- 
ing conducted in the envigorating atmosphere of the Mere 
Point and Popham Beach study halls.

very little with the important 
task of soaking up vitamin D. 


Everyone haa remarked how 
nice the campus Bnoks during 
the summer. The infirmary staff 
haa several ideas of how to 
further beautify the college, 
however. They think that the 
1912 Polar Bear would look ex- 
ceedingly handsome presiding on 
their front lawn. Laura sug- 
gets that a plot of perennials 
around its base would be the 
finishing touch . . . Why not? 


Interfraternity rivalry may well 
be the keenest for some time this 
summer. The White Key has effi- 
ciently organized a very complete 
Softball schedule, and already 
twilight games are proving to be 
popular. Jack Magee announces 
that an interfraternity meet later 
in the summer may be planned, 

and some talk is made of having 
intermural golf and tennis 
matches. To date this interfrater- 
nity competition hasn't been ex- 
tended to the combined dining 
clubs, but the possibility of a cuS- 
tard pie battle is not without rea-

What Should You Save To Help? 

WASHINGTON, D. O— The following table issued by the Treasury 
Department is intended ds a savings yardstick for the average income- 
earner. It suggests how everyone of the 48,000,000 
employed persons in the United States may partici- 
pate in the war effort through the systematic purchase 
of Defense Savings Bonds. 

"The job ahead of us is far bigger than most' of us 
realize," Secretary Morgenthau declared in making 
the table public "I know that the American people 
are ready to do their part to win the war. One of the 
ways we can do much more is by intensifying our 
effort in the purchase of Defense Bonds." 

While persons without dependents may be able to 
Bet aside more than the suggested figures, persons 
with several dependents, or with other heavy family 
obligations, may be unable to save at the suggested 
rate, the Treasury Department pointed out.

Wells Leaves For North Carolina For Duration As Naval Instructor 

Coach Wells Commissioned 
Lieutenant, Senior Grade 

! # 

It's Lieutenant Linn Wells of the United States Naval 
Reserve — the popular Bowdoin athletic coach and physical 
training instructor this week was commissioned a lieutenant 
in the naval aviation physical training branch of the United 
States Naval Reserve. Lieutenant Wells has been ordered to 
report /or duty August 27 at the North Carolina State train- 
ing base. 

Wells will join the staff at 
North Carolina headed by Lt. 
Cmdr. Jimmy Cuowley, former 
Fordham football mentor. The 
naval aviation physical training 
program is in charge of Lt. Cmdr. 
Tom Hamilton and includes among 
,its instructors the cream of the 
American athletic coaching crop. 

Wells will leave Bowdoin after 
11 successful years of coaching 
here. He will go into naval service 
for the duration with 20 years of 
coaching experience and 27 years 
ot baseball playing experience be- 
hind him. He was graduated from 
Springfield College in 1922 after 
which he coached one year at 
Mineville, N. Y., where he pro- 
duced that town's first football 
team. The following two years he 
spent at Logus Valley, L. I., then 
he coached four sports and cap- 
tured two football championships 
among other prizes at Bradford, 

Following a year of coaching at 
Bloomsburg, Pa., Wells hit the 
peak of his success to date at 

Fairhaven, Mass., where his foot- 
ball teams won 24 out of 28 games. 
He produced many a winner in 
other" sports and many a fine 
athlete and kept up the pace upon 
coming to Bowdoin in 1931. His 
varsity baseball and hockey teams 
here have won their share of titles 
and have always exhibited" a fight- 
ing spirit which could be instilled 
only by Wells. He meanwhile 
performed yeoman service in de- 
veloping freshman football and 
basketball material and in tutor- 
ing jayvee baseball prospects. In 
past summers he has coached and 
played with the best of semi-pro 
baseball clubs but this year he re- 
mained at Bowdoin to continue his 
intensive calisthenics and "com- 
mando" training for undergradu- 

Lt. Wells is on leave of absence 
from the college for the duration 
and he leaves Bowdoin and a mul- 
titude of friends after 11 success- 
ful years and heads for naval 
services with the best wishes of 
his many admirers. 

Reporter Finds Professor 
Moody A Grand Gentleman 

By John F. Jaques 

"Professor Moody, like his predecessor, Felix Smyth, was 
resolved that the students should perform the work assigned 
them and Buck became a tradition of terror." Hatch's History 
of Bowdoin College leaves the reader with this record of the 
terrified math students as about the only word about our sen- 
ior Professor Emeritus. Historian Hatch did go on to say that 
"some who, to their own surprise, passed the course may have 
felt that Professor Moody was not merely a just but a most 
benevolent man." 

Wilson Albion Moody, Sc.D., 
Wing Professor of Mathematics, 
Emeritus, is his full title as listed 
in our catalogue. Your best bet to 
meet him socially is the Math 
Club. He still takes an active in- 
terest in the regular meetings 
during the school year. 

His house at 60 Federal Street 
is just below the Harriet Beecher 
Stowe House on the other side of 
the street. It's a large brown 
shingled house sitting a little back 
from the sidewalk. It's up on a 
little rise so there is a long flight 
of wooden stairs up to the little 
landing generally known to Maine 
folks as a "stoop." The friendly 
doorway with only a screen door 
on it led into a short hall with a 
couple of scatter rugs on the floor. 
From the hallway Mr. Moody led 
the way into his study where we 

sat the rest of the afternoon fac- 
ing each other by the window. He 
said he'd lived here for fifty-two 
years and that room certainly did 
remind me of my grandfather's 
place in Portland where he lived 
for nearly as many years. There 
was a guiet neatness about the 
books in their shelves and the 
small square table in the center of 
the room that showed things here 
were used enough so that dusting 
was no chore. Books weren't in 
shiny new covers from the Book 
of the Month Club. They were 
well-worn and familiar looking. 
Mr. Moody used to be called 

"Buck" by fifty classes of Bow- 
doin undergraduates, according to 
Hatch's History, but you would 
hardly call him that today. Still

New Hymnals 
For Fall Chapel 

VARIET Y . . . . . 

By Crawford B. Thayer 

Since sleigh-riding at a Bowdoin houseparty is the next 
thing to a myth anyway, in spite of what some national mag- 
azines may indicate, and since Bowdoin does not go in for 
Winter Carnivals, we wager to state that Bowdoin College's 
contemporary, inaugural summer houseparty will go down in 
the books as one of the best in its long series ....

[ Continued on Page 3 ] 

At two recent meetings of the 
Music and Religious committees of 
Bowdoin a new hymnal was adopt- 
ed for the school year beginning in 
September, publication of the pres- 
ent one having been discontinued. 
The hymnal has the approval of 
the following universities: Colum- 
bia, Harvard. Vassar, Wellesley, 
Stamford, and Chicago. 

The hymnal is devised primarily 
in the interest of the college stu- 
dent. The following paragraph is 
quoted from the preface: 

"One of the striking characteris- 
tics of the past decade in colleges 
has been the great increase of in- 
; terest and participation in good 
music on the part of students. The 
vivid, personal experience of great 
music that comes from singing in 
glee clubs and choirs, together with 
the rise in the general level in 
taste, has brought about wide- 
spread dissatisfaction with the mu- 
sic of college hymnals. Through 
several college generations there 
has been an increasing demand for 
a hymnal that meets a high stand- 
ard of musical quality for use in 
chapels and by student groups of 
all kinds." 

Every hymn has been examined 
by the Music Department. Most of 
the great hymns and tunes are in- 
cluded, emphasis in the balance is 
placed upon the worth of the hymn, 
and special emphasis upon the mu- 
sical value of the tunes and har- 
monizations. They are written 
within the range of men's voices, 
many are built upon folk-songs and 
chants, and the times abound in 
great chorals. Even Negro spirit- 
uals are included. One chief quali- 
fication is that all tunes are sing- 
able and easy to learn. The tunes 
themselves are of great and music- 
al value. Great composers find 
their names in the book — Bach, 
I Mendelssohn, Hassler, Kruger, 
j Palestrina, and Praetorius. 

Beginning next fall one chapel 
each week will be devoted to hymn- 
j singing, in which hymns and tunes 
and methods of reading the tunes 
will be discussed briefly, and there 
will be opportunity to learn them. 
Many old favorites, unfortunate- 
ly, are not included in the hymnal. 
To overcome this one objection, 
words of the hymns which are con- 
sidered part of the College tradi- 
tion and of general popularity will 
be printed on separate sheets and 
included in the binding of the new 
volumes. If any student has a fav- 
orite hymn which he would like to 
see included, he may communicate 
his desire to the Music Depart- 
ment The hymn will be included, 
space permitting. 

Each year, when Bowdoin makes 
a survey of the scholarship of the 
eleven fraternities and the Thorn- 
dike Club, the non-fraternity men 
have always led the rest of the 
college. However, in a national 
survey made by Dr. Alvin E. 
Duerr of the Manufacturers' Trust 
Company of New York, it has 
been proven that this is not the 
case in the majority of American 

Fraternity men rank higher in 
scholarship than non-fraternity 
men in the United States for the 
twelfth consecutive year, accord- 
ing to a survey covering institu- 
tions of higher learning which has 
just been released by the National 
Interfraternity Conference. 

The nation-wide survey included 
the scholastic records of more 
than 75,000 undergraduate mem- 
bers of the 2,389 chapters belong- 
ing to 60 national fraternities es- 
tablished at 180 colleges and uni- 
versities. When fraternity men 
passed unorganized men in schol- 
arship for the first time in 1929- 
1930, there were only 125 institu- 
tions which furnished scholastic 
records covering 60,000 fraternity 

The average rating of all fra- 
ternities throughout the country 
for the academic year 1940-1941 is 
.036 per cent above the composite 
all-men's average of their insti- 
tutions, states the report, and 
therefore proportionately higher 
than the average of all non-fra- 
ternity men. The margin, how- 
ever, is the narrowest since 1929- 
1930. This might be due, Dr. 
Duerr points out, to disturbed con- 
ditions resulting from the nation- 
al emergency, (as no previous sur- 
vey had revealed so many com- 
plete reversals of form between 
semesters on the part of the indi- 
vidual chapters). 

The outstanding record for gen- 
eral fraternity scholarship was 
made at Washington College in 
Maryland, where the group aver- 
age was 23 per cent better than 
the all-men's Centenary College 
followed closely with 22 per cent. 
At Transylvania, Davidson, Mill- 
saps, Alabama Polytechnic, Fur- 
man, Mississippi State, and Mis- 
sissippi College, the fraternities 
were ten per cent or more above 
the all-men's average. 

In the New England states 
among 20 institutions the leader 
is Rhode Island State with 4.2 per 
cent above the all-men's average 
with Dartmouth College second 
with 2.7 per cent above. Leading 
on the Rhode Island campus is the 
Alpha Epsilon Pi chapter with 18 
per cent above, followed by Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon with 11 per cent 
above. All fraternities at Rhode 
Island State are above the all- 
men average. 

Chapter leader in the entire area 
is Alpha Epsilon Pi with 39 per 
cent above the all-men's average 
rating on the Tufts College cam- 

j Formal Dance To Be Held 
In Gymnasium From 9 To 3 

I ■ 

I By Dick Hornberger 

Brad Briggs, Chairman of the Dance Committee, an- 
[ nounced late last week that "Ella Fitzgerald and her famous 
j orchestra" have been signed to play at the first summer house- 
party in the history of Bowdoin. The Fitzgerald band, as their 
tagline implies, is a very well-known and popular outfit. In a 
long line of Bowdoin houseparty bands, Ella has the distinc- 
tion of being the only woman bandleader ever to appear. This 
is not surprising, however, since "The First Lady of Song" is 
one of the few female maestros in the business. 

ELLA FITZGERALD and Her Famous Orchestra 


President SilLs announced in a 
chapel talk last Monday that the 
college had leased some shore 
property at Simpson's Point and 
Spruce Point with bathing facili- 
ties for the students attending the 
summer session. This property 
will be available for the next six 
j weeks and is open to the officers 
,'of the naval contingent and their 
j families. 

It is located only four and one 
half miles from the gym and is the 
nearest salt water bathing place 
to Brunswick. There will be 
signs on the Mere Point road di- 
recting the turnout for the Simp- 
son's Point Road and also indicat- 
ing which property is to be used. 
A caretaker will be provided for 
the grounds and it is expected 
that. students will not abuse the 
privilege of using this property. 

Sufficient water for bathing is 
possible for two hours on and off 
high tide, and "some deep water 
can be found at all times. Presi- 
dent Sills said that he hoped 
eventually Bowdoin could provide 
facilities for a club house at the 
{shore with boating. He also 
| stressed the fact that Bowdoin 
|wa.s one of the few colleges sit- 
! uated near the ocean and should 
(make use of its unusual oppor- 

President Sills also announced 
that the place vacated by Mr. 
Richard Chittim in the math de- 
partment has been filled by Mr. 
Richard M. Cobb, M.A., of the 
class of 1932. Mr. Cobb was a 
teaching fellow in mathematics 
here in 1934-35 and will only re- 
j main for the second semester this 
i summer. 

In his Chapel talk the President 
said that he felt the voluntary 
chapel services this summer were 
going rather well. The average 
attendance has been over sixty, 
but he expressed the desire that 
a larger group of students would 
appear at twelve. o'clock. 

President Sills said that he had 
been asked concerning the gen- 
eral condition of the college and 
how the summer session was work- 
ing out. He was able to reply in 
three words: "Very well indeed." 
Although there were a few fail- 
ures, most of the boys, he felt, 
were taking their work this sum- 
mer seriously. 

According to Vance Bourjailly 
'44, editor, the summer issue of 
the Quill, which is to appear the 
last week in August, will expand 
to cover all fields of literature, 
and other arts as well. 

The staff feels that in the past 
the Quill has been limited to too 
few fields of writing, thus bar- 
ring much good work from publi- 

While the Quill's policy until 
now has been to publish only seri- 
ous poetry and short sketches of 
superlative quality, with work by 
perhaps a half-dozen authors, this 
issue plans to include humor, light 
verse, poetry, short stories, essays, 
and faculty material, if it is of 
sufficient interest. 

The staff has made an aggres- 
sive drive for more and varied 
material with a smoker, never 
held before, and through Bulletin 
Board publicity. Since this issue 
will come out during the last week 
in August, the deadline for copy 
is August 8, but material for this 
and coming issues is always wel- 
come. With a few more features 
than usual, the same printer, 
make-up, and cover design will be 

College Adopts New 
Scholarship Plans 

Scholarships will be awarded, un- 
til further notice, at the beginning 
of each semester. Applications for 
fall awards must be made at the of- 
fice of the Director of Student Aid 
in the Moulton Union not later 
"than Thursday, August 20th. Ap- 
plication forms may be secured at 
once at that office. 

Awards will be made 'about Sep- 
tember 19th. For men attending 
the summer sessions grants will be 
based on the May grades and the 
grades of the summer session. Of 
course scholarships are not stu- 
dent honors but student aid so all 
recipients must demonstrate real 
need before awards will be made. 
Interviews will be held by the fac- 
ulty committee during the latter 
part of this term. Already nearly 
$9,000 from the scholarship funds 
have been allotted to men attend- 
ing the summer session. 

Ella Fitzgerald, for one of only 
24 years, has come a long way 
and made a great name for her- 
self in the music world. Her first 
appearance in public was in an 
amateur show at the Harlem 
Opera House. She didn't do very 
well; in fact the judges rang the 
bell on her and she had to retire 

j f rom the competition. That mis- 

! fortune might have culminated 
her career before it ever got 

! started if .Chick Webb, at that 

jtime the nation's number one 
swing drummer, had not happened 
to be present. He liked Ella's 

! voice and gave her a job. After a 
few months of training, she 

[started singing for his band and 
seemingly overnight attracted a 

i nationwide following. Many band- 
leaders throughout the country 
scrambled for her services; Benny 

; Goodman went so far as to offer 
her a bonus of S5000 and a large 
salary to join his organization. 

Sills Approves Of 
Summer Session 

Masque And Gown Will Present "Shepherd 
Of My People" By Douglas Carmichael '44 


There are • still opportunities 
for undergraduate* to get part 
time work by applying at the Of- 
fice of the Director of Student 
Aid. Mr. Lancaster states that 
Jobs are so plentiful that appli- 
cants need not be on the scholar- 
ship lists to obtain work. The 
main requisites are willingness 
to work and the desire to stay on 
the Job regularly after being 

There is a particularly good 
opportunity to work in the local 
Cabot Mill on four hour shifts 
4 p.m. to 8 p.m. or 8 p.m. to 12.00 
midnight, six days a week. 

Several other Jobs are also 

A week from tonight, Friday, 
August 14, in Memorial Hall at 
8.30 p.m., the Masque and Gown 
under the direction of Professor 
Quinby will present as its second 
offering of the summer session 
"Shepherd Of My People," a three- 
act play by Douglas Carmichael 
'44. This is the first full-length 
student-written play to be pro- 
duced here since Charles Mergen- 
dahl's "Me and Harry" in the 
spring of 1941. ■ t 

The leading character in the 
play is that of Donald MacKenzie 
Fraser, the young owner of a 
large industrial plant in a small 
New England town in which his 
family have been the leading citi- 
zens for two hundred years. The 
plant is managed, however, by 
Donald's uncle, since he himself 
has little interest in business. In 
the plant's labor troubles the uncle 
sees an opportunity for furthering 
his own political ambitions by some 
rather shady dealings with the un- 
scrupulous labor leader, Garcia. 
The plot concerns Donald's gradual 
awakening to the forces by which 

he is surrounded and his determi- 
nation to assert his authority and 
put his own social and economic 
theories into effect. The play as a 
whole has been described as an at- 
tempt to portray the class struggle 
and labor problem from the point 
of view of an aristrocrat, in reac- 
tion against the large number of 
leftist dramas which have been 
filling the stage in recent years. 

Alan S. Cole '45, who was last 
seen as Marc Antony in "Julius 
Caesar," plays the role of Donald. 
The feminine interest is provided 
by Miss Suzanne Young and Mrs. 
Manning A. Smith as the two girls 
who are chiefly responsible for the 
development of Donald's character, 
while the mother of the former, 
Mrs. Carleton C. Young, plays the 
part of Donald's mother. Balfour 
H. Golden '44 and Norman B. Rich- 
ards '45 appears as the uncle and 
Garcia respectively. Others in the 
cast are Norman O. Gauvreau '43, 
F. Douglas Fenwood '44, Burton 
Thornquist '44, Robert Schnabel 
•44, Kendall Niven "46, and Hugh 
Pendexter, 3rd '46. 

The stage manager for this pro- 
duction is Frank A. Oxnard '45, 

with Wendell L. Plummer '43 in 
charge of properties. The stage set- 
ting is being designed by Donald T. 
Devine '43 and constructed under 
the direction of Doane Fischer '45, 
production - manager. Richard W. 
Hyde '43 is in charge of lighting. 

In addition to students, several 
' townspeople are assisting with the 
production of the play. Miss Nancy 
Webb and the Misses Alice and 
Sigrid Achorn have been helping 
with the scenery, and Norman Cur- 
tis of Brunswick is assistant elec- 
trician. The portrait of Donald's 
first ancestor to come to America, 
which provides the keynote of the 
set, is being painted by Mrs. Betsy 
Morse. Miss Margaret Mitchell and 
Miss Alice Cooper, both of whom 
apepared in the Masque and 
Gown's last production, "Meet The 
Wife," will act as ushers, along 
with the student members of that 

The Masque and Gown's third 
play of the summer is to be se- 
lected on Monday, and will prob- 
ably be student-written also. It is 
to be produced on September 8, 
and try-outs are scheduled for 3.00 
p.m., Sunday, August 16.

At this writing the Summer Ses- 
sion appears to be gathering a 
very satisfactory amount of praise. 
When asked for his opinion. Presi- 
dent Sills said that the favorable 
aspects far outweigh anything un- 
favorable. Several faculty mem- 
bers have told him that their stu- 
dents are working harder, perhaps 
due to a greater seriousness to- 
wards studies. 

Chairman of the Accelerated 
Program Committee, Professor 
Edward C. Kirkland, speaking only 
as an observer of the experiment, 
also attests to its success, although 
he felt that no generalization can 
be made until the end of the second 
term. The success so far may be at- 
tributed to the elongated week 
ends which perhaps serve to di- 
vorce work from relaxation^ to 
mere novelty; to the presence of 
the more earnest members of the 
College; and to a possible gain in 
continuity of courses being follow- 
ed each day rather than every 
other day. However, Kirkland 
pointed out that the truth or fal- 
sity of these or other hypotheses 
can be proved only by further ex- 

The main item on the unfavor- 
able side seems to be a lack of 
that never satisfactory commodity, 
time. The President mentioned 
that since Commencement is to be 
moved up to May 22 next year, the 
Summer Session may benefit to the 
extent of an extra week. — And 
"Gather ye rosebuds while ye 
may," because the consideration of 
a six day week may enter plans 
for another year in order to eke 
out a little more of the above-men- 
tioned commodity. t 

Presedint Sills expressed disap- 
pointment in the failure of outside 
competition for the summer sports 
schedule especially since the pro- 
gram for next year will necessarily 
be greatly curtailed. But in at 
least one respect the prospect for 
1943 is better than expected. The 
advent of approximately another 
125 members of the Class of '46 in 
Stepember is confidently expected, 
with fewer withdrawals to date 
than usual. 

She preferred, however, to stay 
with Chick Webb, and when death 
interrupted his career, Ella took 
over his band and has been its 
leader and songstress ever since. 

Ella Fitzgerald's musical talents 
don't end with singing and band- 
leading; she has in addition writ- 
ten many of the popular song hits 
of the past ifew years. Probably 
the most famous of these is "A- 
Tisket-A-Tasket," a song -which 
did much to establish her as one 
of the country's leaders in popular 
music. She is also responsible for 
the introduction and populariza- 
tion of many hits, such as "Five 
O'Clock Whistle," "Hello, Ma, I've 
Done It Again," and "The One I 

The composer, arranger, musi- 
cal director and sax star, com- 
bined, of Ella's orchestra is Teddy 
McRae. McRae joined the band 
back in 1936 when it was still in 
the hands of Chick Webb and has 
been an outstanding star of the 
organization' ever since. Among 
the songs composed by McRae are 
"Back Bay Shuffle" and "Traffic 

Both Ella Fitzgerald and Teddy 
McRae, besides being standout mu- 
sicians, are rabid sports fans. Ella 
has seen Joe Louis in his last 26 
fights, fortunately massing only 
his knockout at the hands of Max 
Schmeling. Apparently her extra- 
curricular interests stop not even 
here, but extend into the realms 
of bowling, charity and expensive 
perfumes, of which she is a con- 

The dance, needless to say, is to 
be h^ld tonight in the gymnasium 
from 9 to 3. It will be formal. 
Everything will be approximately 
the same as at former house- 
parties, with the exception of the 
gym decorations, which will be 
very simple. 

As announced in the previous 
issue of the Orient, guests are 
asked not to arrive before 2 
o'clock Friday afternoon and must 
leave Sunday afternoon.

With one term of Bowdoin's first 
summer school behind us, it may not be 
amiss to examine the set-up with an eye 
to the future policy of the College. The 
results of last Saturday's finals will, of 
course, hold the last answer; but every- 
one seems to agree — faculty and students 
alike — that the educational experiment 
has been a great success. So successful in 
fact have been the results in subject mat- 
ter acquired that it might be a welcome, 
and not too radical, proposal to suggest 
the establishing of the fall and winter 
semesters on the six week basis. 

Many problems of administration and 
course organization would have to be 
met, but the excellent manner in which 
the faculty have faced the new demands 
of the summer situation shows that no 
problem would be insuperable. Language 
courses in particular, as well as the cul- 
tural courses, would benefit greatly by a 
continuation of the intensive plan. The 
sciences provide a bit more difficulty in 
arranging laboratory schedules, but here 
the experiences of the summer could fur- 
"rrish *taases~fbi "di awftig op a new pro- 

Much is to be said in favor of the con- 
centration of a student upon two 
courses, rather than spreading himself 
thinly over some five or six. 

Another point to be made in favor of 
this plan is that through it the liberal 
arts college can adapt itself to the new 
demands of a practical age, and can offer 
something tangible in competition to the 
large state universities. For it is high time 
that the small colleges recognize the 
threat to their very existence in the fast- 
growing, state-endo: 
the colleges, and in particular we 
of Bowdoin, could pioneer in establishing 
a new basis for the academic year, with 
its resultant new methods, they would 
again find themselves with an unchal- 
lenged place in the American educational 
system. . D.A.S. 


According to reports in the local pa- 
pers and to persistent and ever-increasing 
rumors, the town of Brunswick seems to 
be undergoing a definite crime wave of 
sorts, with the emphasis on sex crimes 
and arson. Despite all the efforts of the 
local authorities, there seems to be con- 
siderable difficulty in bringing the situa- 
tion under control. And despite all the 
efforts on both sides for friendly rela- 
tions between town and gown, there are 
certain quarters in which these out- 
breaks are almost certain to be laid to 
members of the student body, it is al- 
ways easier to expect disgraceful con- 
duct from the strangers in one's midst 
than from one's neighbors. 

Students occupy a precarious position 
in these times, and the slightest oppor- 
tunity may be seized upon by their op- 
ponents as grounds for attack. In such 
circumstances it might perhaps reassure 
any distrustful elements of the local pop- 
ulation as well as help the authorities 
control a difficult situation if the stu- 
dents of the college were to form an aux- 
iliary police unit of same sort for the 
night patrol of any sections of the town 

to which they might be assigned. More 
than one man to whom we have talked 
has declared his willingness to join such 
an organization. If formed, it would help 
relieve the strain on the regular police 
and ensure the greater safety of the 
town's streets at night. 

We do not know what attitude may be 
taken toward this proposal by officials, 
both of the town and the college. There 
are doubtless many details which would 
have to be worked out, and there may be 
disadvantages which have not appeared 
to us. To us, "however, it would seem a 
valuable step in the solution of the prob- 
lem. DC. 


As President Sills reminded the stu- 
dent body in chapel on Monday, the 
coming houseparties will take place in 
circumstances widely different from 
those of past years and may easily come 
in for strong criticism in some quarters. 
It is therefore necessary that all students 
watch their conduct closely, lest such 
festivities, like the S.C.D.C. of dishon- 
oured memory, be banned for the dura- 
tion. If excessive inebriation or any of 
the little matters which in college notices 
are euphemistically referred to as "inci- 
dents" occurs, there will be serious dan- 
ger that houseparties may be abolished. 
There are various persons, including 
some of the older alumni, who would be 
only too glad of a chance to do away 
with this Bowdoin institution, which has 
made Bowdoin, if not respected, at least 
known in many~ circles. " v - 

We ourselves thoroughly believe in 
the desirability of houseparties. Most 
college men are under something of an 
extra strain these days, and relaxation is 
necessary every now and then. College 
morale and esprit de corps must be main- 
tained. But if the relaxation becomes too 
violent and attracts too much attention, 
we may be killing the goose that lays the 
golden egg. D.C. 


Anyone who has had occasion in re- 
cent weeks to make a trip of almost any 
length on any of the Boston and Maine 
or Maine Central trains or busses can 
hardly have failed to notice the unprece- 
dented congestion of passenger traffic. 
The wartime rationing of gas and rubber 
has had its effect, with the result that 
anything more than a trip downtown has 
to be made on the public transport lines 
unless one wants to hoard gas for weeks. 
Even confirmed thumbers of long stand- 
ing are to be seen on the trains these 
days, while the early Sunday evening bus 
from Portland, often in several sections, 
. usually carries from fifteen to twenty 
persons standing in the aisle.

A very warm welcome to all of our accelerated guests at 
this summer houseparty! We hope that the heat and the speed 
will not detract from the traditional houseparty program. 


Perhaps in the years to come, 
we'll all look back and talk about 
"that time we went to a Bowdoin 
houseparty in the summer." Any- 
one who has ever arrfbunted to 
anything has gone skiing or slosh- 
ing at a Christmas affair; thou- 
sands have welcomed spring offi- 
cially at Ivy; — but it is a select 
few who will have had the oppor- 
tunity to go on a hay ride under 
the August moon. Perhaps this 
glorified cram session is worth it 
after all. 


Literally hundreds of square 
miles of Cumberland County will 
be explored by horseback, bicycle, 
and on foot during the next two 
days. All of the reaches of Casco 
Bay will entertain vacationing cul- 
ture; the native lobster and clam 
population is apt to witness a 
marked decline; the stern rock- 
bound coasts are sure to soften 
temporarily. And all this just be- 
cause a few females invade Bruns- 
wick for a brief visit. What would 
happen if they stayed a week! 

Now that exams are over, the 
usual study intention declarations 

[have blossomed forth. "Going to 
| do daily assignments right on 
time . . . May sit in on two or 
I three courses. . . . get a lot of that

"no weekends." And 

then according to regular custom 
". . . wonder what's at the Cum- 
berland tonight . . . guess it won't

effect of the accelerated program 
is that this cycle is a bit more 
rapid now.

to relieve tbe^fnissure by 
providing additional facilities, and by 
pleading with the public in large ad- 
vertisements to do as much of its travel- 
ing as possible in the slack periods of the 
middle of the week. Many business 
houses, we understand, have cooperated 
with this program by staggering the va- 
cations of their employees so as to make 
each begin in the middle of the week. 

> It seems to^us that possibly the college 
also could do something along this line. 
There is, of course, a certain tradition 
in colleges as in most other American in- 
stitutions making Sunday and the days 
immediately preceding and following it 
sacred to "getting away from it all." Per- 
haps, however, this tradition, like so 
many others, may have to fall tempor- 
arily at least before the onslaught of war. 
It is a definite fact that the regular week 

"end exodus from the colleges forms a 
sizeable portion of the transport prob- 
lem. Why would it not be possible, 
therefore, for colleges to grant their one 
or two days off per week on Wednesday 
or Thursday, and hold regular classes on 
Saturdays and Sundays? It would be 
little more revolutionary than many of 
the changes already introduced. We sug- 
gest that not only Bowdoin but the other 
colleges of this region give this idea seri- 
ous consideration. It might prove an im- 
portant contribution, if not to the war 
effort, at least to the comfort and con- 
venience of those engaged in it.

you can see he probably is the 
sort of fellow you would call 
•Buck" Moody h" you had known 
him a number of years ago. There 
were a couple of stories about the 
boys' of the 1880s and a sly 
twinkle in his left eye that are 
indicative of a good gent. 

He went to a little school in 
Kennebunkport for a while, 
learned from his teacher a kind of 
Latin that he found later to be 
not too good, atudied Greek with 
!ht» minister's son. He had to work 
hard* for a while and finally 
skipped high school for the chance 
to go to the Hallowell Classical 
and Scientific Institute. The cur- 
riculum was divided into four 
courses; the technical training, the 
domestic course for thp girls who 
came to the part of the Institute 
set aside as the town high school, 
the classical preparation for the 
college aspirant, and the English 
course for every one who fitted 
into rrn other category. Mr. 
Moody in true scientist's nature 
couldn't see much in English 
courses in t hose days • because he 

could read and write. (I think he 
was rubbing it in because I told 
him I majored in English now, 
since I dropped Math and Chem- 
istry). In 1879 he came to Bow- 
doin as two members of earlier 
classes from Hallowell had done. 
An Alpha Delt here, he majored 
in Mathematics, "which came easy 
to me." 

When he was in college there 
was a long thirteen weeks vaca- 
tion from about Thanksgiving un- 
til after New Year's. During the 
winter vacation many boys got 
jobs in the public schools here in 
Maine. They were usually chosen 
for their ability to handle the 
tough boys about twenty years old 
who tried to "examine" the new 
teacher's qualifications by beating 
him up or. just driving him crazy 
in class. If he stood this test he 
was a good teacher and every 
thing was okay. If not, he was 
fired and another boy tried it. Mr. 
Moody taught at Edward Little 
Institute for a while during his 
senior year, but when he started 
to come back, the poorly staffed 
Institute asked him to become as- 
sistant headmaster. He was in 
charge of the whole science de- 
partment. He arranged the work 
there so he could do it from Mon- 

day till Friday. Then he came to 
Bowdoin and did his week's work 
here in four courses from Friday 
night until Monday noon. He said 
this was easy because he was tak- 
ing an English course and that 
whs never bard for a science major 
(I wish I'd never told him what 
mine was). 

Two years after he graduated 
from Bowdoin he , was back as 
Tutor in Mathematics, in 1887 as 
Instructor, and in 1888 Professor. 
Thirty-eight years later, in 1926 
(says Hatch, I remembered Mr. 
Moody's saying 1925) he retired. 

During all those years Bowdoin 
had many an academic headache. 
Even in Mr. Moody's own class of 
1882 there were about eight boys 
who had to be dropped from col- 
lege in their senior year. This left 
a class of thirty-two (of whom 
only three are living today: George 
F. Bates, M.D.; Pres. Wallace E. 
Mason, A.M., Ed.D, retired; and 
Mr. Moody). 

Mr. Moody asked me to keep 
this interview impersonal, and 
reportorial necessity made me try 
to get some news interest into the 
story. But for any Bowdoin man 
the real interest is not the 1880's 
but the fine modern gentleman of 
the old school who once rowed 

number two oar in a champion- 
ship four-man crew. He looks 
hearty enough todays aged 83, to 
pull a good oar. When the Presi- 
dent speaks of "guests and friends 
of the college" we sometimes 
aren't sure of what he means. 
Professor Moody, Emeritus, is cer- 
tainly one of our stanchest friends

for the Bowdoin team, there will 
be some hard matches in the 
league play. Fort Levett, for in- 
stance, is led by Corporal Hines, 
ranked ninth nationally a few 
years ago. Hines swept through 
the fourth of July, Navy Relief 
Tournament in Portland without 
losing a set. He and Captain 
Smart, also from Fort Levett, won 
the doubles play in the same tour- 

Portland is probably the strong- 
est team in the league play. They 
are led by Hubert Hauck, former 
Harvard captain, who is the top 
seeded man in the state. They 
have Frank Stroud, Exeter's first 
man, playing fourth.

• New Deferred Service Plan Allows You to Continue Your Education * 

In the skies over America the might- 
iest air fleet in the history of the 
world is mobilizing for victory! 

So fast is it growing that there is a 
place here — an urgent need here — 
for every college man in America who 
can qualify for Officer's Training. 

The U. S. Army Air Forces need 
Flying Officers and Ground Crew 
Officers. And many of them must 
come from the ranks of today's col- 
lege students — men who make their 
plana now for the necessary Aviation 
Cadet training.' 

Thanks to a newly created Air 
Force Reserve plan, men of all classes 
— aged 18 to 26, inclusive — can en- 
list for im m ed ia te service or continue 
the scholastic work required for 
graduation before being called to 
active duty. 

You must meet the requirements 
for physical fitness, of course. In 
addition, you take a new simplified 
teat to determine your ability to grasp 
the training. A college man should 
pass it easily. 


Those accepted who wish immediate 
duty will go into training as rapidly 
as facilities permit. As an Aviation 
Cadet, you are paid $75 a month, 
with s u bs i st e nce, quarters, medical 
care, uniforms, equipment. 

In 8 months you can win an offi- 
cer's commission as a b o mb ardier, 
navigator or pilot — and be well 
started on your way to serve America 
and advance yourself in a*

2. All college students may enlist

til their turns come for Aviation 
Cadet training. 

3. AH college students may enlist 
in the Air Force Enlisted Reserve 
and watt until ordered to report 
for Aviation Cadet training. 

Upon graduation or withdrawal 
from college, men will be assigned 
to active duty at a training center 
as facilities become available. 

If die necessity of war demands, 
the deferred status in the Army 
Reserve may be terminated at any 
time by the Sec re t a ry of War.

There are also commissions awarded 
in ground crew service. College men 
particularly will be interested in the 
requirements for Armaments, Com-

neering experience your chances of 
getting a commission are excellent. 

As a Second Lieutenant on active

pay ranges from 5183 to £245 a 


If you want to fight for America, this 
is where your blows will count. 

If you want the best training in the 
world, and years of solid achieve- 
ment in aviation — the great career 
field of the future — this is where 
you belong. Your place is here — in 
the Army Air Forces.

In this Kaywoodie pipe, called the Car- 
buretor Kaywoodie, a wonderfully sweet- 
smoking pipe has been improved by tbe 
application o( a neat little principle of 
physics. When you take a puff at one of 
these Carburetor Kaywoodies, you auto- 
matically draw air in through a tiny inlet 
in the bottom of the bowl. That incom- 
ing air keeps the smoke cool, sweet and 
serene, no matter how belligerently you 
puff. In fact, the harder you puff, the 
more air comes in. That's why it's called 
a Carburetor Kaywoodie. Everybody 
knows that a Kaywoodie is the most so- 
cial ly-conscious of pipes— gets itself ad- 
mired everywhere. And the Kaywoodie 
Flavor is famous. But don't let us urge

What Should You Save To Help? 

WASHINGTON, D. 0— The following table issued by the Treasury 
Department is intended at a savings yardstick for the average income* 
earner. It suggests how everyone of the 48,000,000 
employed persons in the United States may partici- 
pate in the war effort through the systematic purchase 
of Defense Savings Bonds. 

"The job ahead of us is far bigger than most' of us 
realize." Secretary Morgenthau declared in making 
the table public 1 know that the American people 
are ready to do their part to win the war. One of the 
ways we can do much more is by intensifying our 
effort in the purchase of Defense Bonds." 

While persons without dependents may be able to 
feet aside more than the suggested figures, persons 
with several dependents, or with other heavy family 
Obligations, may be unable to save at the suggested 
rate, the Treasury Department pointed out.

Moulton Union the freshmen will 
be addressed by George R. Walk- 
er '02. Mr. Walker, of New York 
City, is the president of the Board 
of Overseers and will welcome the 
newcomers on behalf of the 
alumni. Professors Nathaniel C. 
Kendrick, Thomas Means, Edward 
S. Hammond, and Noel C. Little 
will give explanations of elective 
courses open to freshmen at that 

time. The freshmen will then go 
to the Sargent Gymnasium for a 
talk on Freshman Athletics by 
Malcolm E. Morrell, Director of 

On Wednesday afternoon all 
freshmen, including those who en- 
tered last June, are required to 
take the psychological tests given 
by Prof. Charles T. Burnett in the 
gymnasium. This is the only part 
of the Freshmen Days program 
that this summer's freshmen are 
requested to take part in, al- 
though they are invited to par- 
ticipate in the other activities. 

The program will conclude on 
Wednesday evening with a Fresh-

Mrs. Daggett Discusses 
"Shepher d Of My People" 

By Katharine T. Daggett 

Editor's note: Mrs. Daggett has played a prominent part 
in Bowdom dramatics for several years. She is next appearing 
in a leading role in "Watch On The Rhine" in Memorial Hall 
next Tuesday night. 

' "Shjpherd of My People" should take some kind of prize 
as the most explicit title of the year. The picture it brings up of 
a benevolent and protected gentleman in a sort of aura of good- 
ness, looking down upon and over a great field of docile sheep 
all with heads down busily at work cropping their day's sus- 
tenance is, apparently, the pictufization of the theme of Mr. 
Carmichael s play. 

There is something to be said for 
such a situation. Wolves would 
have a hard time getting close 
enough to do any permanent dam- 
age to the flock. The sick and the 
feeble sheep would be cared for. 
All would be sheltered. Each would 
be fleeced according to the thick- 
ness of his coat. All the flock 
would have to do would be to crop 
busily, gambol a litUe, and take no 
thought for the morrow or any 
other problem. And the Shepherd 
would watch and calculate < the 
wool shearing and smile at the 
antics of the lambs and now and 
again chase off a wolf or nurse the 
flock through an incipient or real 

All this, in terms of human 
cheep and a rather machine-like 
human shepherd, Mr. Carmichael 

says several times in his play. 
There are times when he says it 
rather well and for a snatch the 
dialogue is good and really moves. 
The great fault with the play is 
that there is no conflict, for Mr. 
Carmichael has made the oppos- 
ing force to this idyllic scene, the 
wolf's side, such a caricature that 
it is comic and absurd and cannot 
be considered an opponent at all. 
The play, therefore, does nothing 
but repeat the pretty picture with 
a Simon Legree menace acting 
like Groucho Marx for comic re- 
lief. The production of his first 
play should be invaluable to the 
author. The audience reaction 
should have shown him some of

Bowdom Receives Grateful 
Letter From Jeff Davis 

A letter written and autographed by Jefferson Davis, 
former president of the Confederacy, to Joseph Williamson, 
Esq., of Augusta in 1889, expressing his gratitude that Bow- 
doin did not revoke at the time of the Civil War an honorary 
degree previously conferred on him, has been received by the 

The letter is considered very 
valuable to the College, not only 
because it is written and signed 
by Jefferson Davis, but because 
of the compliment to the college 
expressed in it. Mr. Seward 
Marsh, Alumni Secretary, says of 
it. "Bowdom should be particular- 
ly proud of such a letter at this 
time, when the sectionalism of 
which Mr. Davis speaks is again 
very dangerous to this nation." 

The text of the letter is as fol- 

Beauvoir, Miss. 
July 3, 1889 
Joseph Williamson Esqr. 
My dear sir. 
Please accept my thanks for 
your kindness in sending to me a 
general catalogue of Bowdoin 
College. It afforded me much 
to turn to the names of 
who have joined the silent 
majority but whose virtues re* 
main a legacy to mankind, such 
as my dear and honored friend 
Franklin Pierce. 

Some newspapers had circulat- 
ed a report that Bowdoin College 
had revoked the honorary degree 
conferred by it upon me and it 
was with no small gratification 
that I found in the catalogue evi- 
dence that the Administrators of 
Bowdoin College were incapable 

of such spite which could only ori- 
ginate from sectionalism. Com- 
plimented beyond my desert by 
the honor conferred, I felt a cor- 
responding pride in the institution 
to which I was so endebted. 

During my long and pleasant 
stay in Maine. I formed many 
friendships, the memory, of which 
remains. Two of those you men- 
tion as having passed over the 
river, and one, my contemporary 
in the Senate, as being present at 
the Commencement to observe 
the 64th Anniversary of his grad- 
uation, I hope it may be granted 
ta him to observe many more. 

With renewed thanks I am

Student Council 
To Enforce New 
Freshman Rules 

Jim Dolan. President of the Stu- 
dent Council, has announced that 
several jradical changes have been 
made iri the methods of enforcing 
freshman rules, both on the cam- 
pus and in the fraternity houses. 
Instead of the rules being enforced 
by the S.C.D.C., a group of sopho- 
mores headed by the vice-president 
of the council and more or less un- 
der its direction, the student coun- 
cil itself will now see that the rules 
are obeyed and will have charge of 
punishing infractions of them. 

This course was decided upon in 
a recent meeting of the council 
with President Sills. Several other 
changes are planned for the forth- 
coming year. Those freshmen who 
entered in June will be subject to 
the rules until the week end of the 
Maine game. Freshmen starting 
college in the fall will be required 
to observe the rules until January. 

Owing to the accelerated course 
of study now in effect, rules have 
also been made governing the ex- 
tent of hazing in the fraternity 
houses. Instead of a whole "Hell 
Week," as in former years, the 
Hell will be curtailed to one day. 
Thursday before the Maine game 
has been selected for Hell Day. It 
is assumed that most of the frater- 
nity initiations will take place on 
the following Friday evening. Pre- 
vious to the initiations, no frater- 
nity will be allowed to require its 
freshmen to spend more than one 
hour a week in learning songs or 
other pre-initiation activities. The 
long walks in the country and the 
quests to which Bowdoin freshmen 
have been subjected in the past are 
also to be discontinued this year. 
One vestige of the former system 
which will be retained will be haz- 
ing during meals. 

Yesterday afternoon a joint 
meeting of the student council and 
all fraternity presidents was held. 
Dolan outlined the changes listed 
above and they were agreed to by 
the house presidents. 

Dolan has also announced that 
the usual home game football 
dances will be held this fall as in 
former years. 

Article By Sills In 
Alumni Publication 

The Bowdoin Alumnus, the 
magazine which keeps the alumni 
in contact with the college, has 
just published its August, 1942, 
issue. This issue is expected to 
have a greatly increased circula- 
tion, as from now on all contri- 
butors to the Alumni Fund are to 
be considered as subscribers. Ac- 
cording to Mr. Seward Marsh, 
Alumni Secretary, this i n- 

crease will add greatly to the ef- 
fectiveness of the publication as a 
means of contact between the 
alumni and the college. 

The introduction to the issue is

Session" by President Sills. In

is anti-fascist, and is still being 
played professionally. Only re- 
cently released for amateur pro- 
duction, the play will have its first

Mrs. Amy Cushing is felt to have

New York. The second play was 
Bowdoin's first undergraduate 
written show since Mengendahl's

New Edition Of QIILL 
To Appear This Week 

According to Vance Bourjaily, 
Editor-in-Chief; the Summer 
edition of the Bowdoin Quill will 
he ready tor distribution some- 
time this week. In spite of the 
odds against them the board 
was able, by dint of serious ef- 
fort, to get out an edition which 
is known to be larger and hoped 
to be better than all previous 
Quills. The expanded Quill will 
include humorous items, and mu- 
sical revues as well as the usual 
amount of poems and short 
stories. In no way has quality 
been wantonly sacrificed for 
quantity, however. 


Robert L. Edwards, associate' 
editor of the Orient this past 
year, has this week been named 
the new Editor-in-Chief of the 
paper. Edwards will assume his 
new duties immediately and will 
succeed Joseph S. Cronin, re- 
signed, who will be graduated at 
the end of the summer session. 
Edwards has served on the paper 
since his freshman year, serving 
in turn as freshman reporter, 
sub-editor, managing editor and 
associate editor. The first issue of 
the paper under the new Editor 
will appear in the fall. 

Edwards Is president of Zeta 
Psi fraternity, captain of the 
track team, president of the sen- 
ior class, and a member of the 
Student Council. 

The remainder of the editorial 
staff of the paper will remain 
unchanged with Douglas Car-

James R. Hlggins and Donald A.

managing editors.

The Ibis, Senior honorary so- 
ciety, has been inactive this sum- 
mer because of the accelerated 
program, according to William T. 
McKeown '43, but will take up 
its usual functions beginning this 
fall. The organization is sup- 
posedly composed of the "most 
intellectually curious" Seniors, 
who, upon retiring, choose two or 
three of the next year's graduat- 
ing class to succeed them. Last 
year's Ibis picked McKeown, and 
John F. Jacques '43, and these 
two will elect another eight or 
perhaps more, since limitation is 
somtimes difficult. 

Jacques is now President of 
Theta Delta Chi, President of the 
Witan, member of the Debating 
Council, Math Club, the Political 
Forum, and is a James Bowdoin 
Scholar. He prepared at Port-

Rushing Season Is Again Almost With Us. Many 
Polite Notes Already Circulating To Freshmen 

By Richard Hornberger 

It is a time-honored newspaper 
custom to assign rather ticklish 
subjects to the people who know 
least about them. Therefore we 
are writing a feature on rushing. 
The situation is not too serious, 
however, since in the sage words 
to follow we are supposed only to 
give our impressions of rushing, 
and any fool can do that. 

The system of being rushed, 
pushed, booted, or what have you, 
into a fraternity is familiar to all 
of us and will soon be so to the 
eager freshmen who will descend 

on Bowdoin. The newcomer is 
met at the station by a smiling, 
hand-shaking crowd of upper- 
classmen, all wanting to give him 
a ride to the dorms or to carry 
his- bags. This year they'll prob- 
ably have to carry him too, or let 
him walk. For the next two or 
three days the freshmen eats 
j gratis, shakes hands, smokes free 
cigarettes, and finally pledges. 
j Sometimes he may even forget 
j which house he joined, but by 
' that time he • doesn't even care. 

The rushing period is twice as 
: hectic for the upperclassmen as 
;for the freshmen, however. The 

freshman can partake freely of 
all the pleasures offered him by 
his "suitors", if that word applies, 
and can have a good time of it 
all. He knows that he won't have 
much trouble getting into some 
house. The upperclassman, on 
the other hand, is somewhat in 
the position of a man proposing to 
his woman. He must be jolly, 
polite, considerate; he must be 
charitable toward the rival 
houses, but , not too charitable. 
He must make it very clear to 
the freshman that if he joins

According to President K. C. M. 
Sills, these exercises will be very 
brief and simple. There will be 
an academic procession of mem- 
bers of the Faculty and of some 
members of the Governing 
Boards from the Library to the 
Chapel. There will be music un- 
der the direction of Professor" 
Tillotson. The candidates for the 
degrees will be presented by Dean 
Nixon, and then the degrees will 
be conferred by the President. 
There will be a brief address by 
President Sills, and the exercises 
will be concluded by the singing 
of the national anthem. 

It is expected that the members 
of the Executive Committee of the 
Governing Boards who will be in 
session that morning will attend 
the exercises. This committee is 
composed of President Sills, Mr. 
John A. Peters, Mr. Frank H. 
Swan, Mr. John F. Dana, Mr. Wil- 
lard Streeter Bass, Mr. E. Far- 
rington Abbott, and Mr. Clement 
F. Robinson. It is expected that 
Mr. Robinson, vice-president of 
the Board of Overseers, will per- 
form the duties of the president 
of the Board at the occasion. 

The men who are candidates 
for the degree of Bachelor of 
Science are Charles M. Boothby, 
Walpoie. Mass.; Peter P. QMTi-

Glee Club Makes Plans 
For Joint Concerts 

Professor Tillotson, Director of 
the college Glee Club, announces 
that more campus singing will ap- 
parently be in order this fall and 
winter. Though a tentative pro- 
gram of concert trips has been 
outlined, newly arisen difficulties 
such as transportation shortage, 
•nen graduating in January, and un- 
certain freshman material threat- 
en to cause its abolition. Defi- 
nite information as to whether or 
not there will be a full fall-winter 
schedule will not be had until the 
first meeting of the Glee Club on 
September 30. 

Outstanding joint concerts now 
included in the nebulous program 
will be held with Radcliffe College, 
at which Brahm's "Requiem" will 
be sung, Bradford Junior College. 
Simmons College, Wellesley Col- 
lege, the Connecticut College for 
Women, and possibly one or two 
engagements as yet uncertain. 

Professor Tillotson also an- 
nounces the tentative program 01 
concerts and dates of the Bruns- 
wick Chamber Music Society, all 
presentations of which will be in 
Memorial Hall. In late November 
or early January there will be a 
song recital by Olga Averino who 
will be accompanied by Margaret 
Macdonald, Director of the Welles- 
ley College Choir. February third 
there will be a trio concert given 
by Norbert Lauga, Violinist, Yves 
Chardon, Violoncellist, and Freder- 
ic Tillotson, Pianist. The program 
at this presentation will include 
the work of Haydn and a violin 
sonata by Beethoven. There will 
also be a trio rendition of Shu- 

Three concerts will be held Feb- 
ruary 22-24-26 by the Curtis String 
Quartet. Assisting artists will be 
Victor Polatschek, clarinet solo 
(Boston Symphony), Yves Char- 
don, cellist (Boston, Symphony), 
and Frederic Tillotson. The pro- 
gram for the first of the three con- 
certs is as follows: Dohnanyi quar- 
tet; Prokovieff Overture for clar- 
inet and strings, and Mozart Clar- 
inet Quintet. The second concert on 
the twenty-fourth will include 
Shubert's Death and Maiden Quar- 
tet and two cello Quintets. The 
third and last of the Curtis Quar- 
tet presentations wijl include 
Beethoven's String Quartet; Boro- 
dine Nocturne, Mendelssohn's Can- 
zonet ta, Shostokovich-Jaffe Polka, 
and Brahm's Piano Quartet no. 2.

Good news for the Orient comes in 
the announcement today that Robert L. 
Edwards has been named the new Ed- 
itor-in-Chief of the Orient to carry on 
the work of volume seventy-two m the 
fall. He will bring a wealth of experience 
to the position, having served the paper 
for three years as reporter, sub-editor, 
managing editor and associate editor. He 
has been one of the hardest workers ever 
to serve on the Orient staff. 

As president of the senior class, as a 
" member of the Student Council, as cap- 
tain of the track team and as a fraternity 
president, he will have a varied and 
healthy background from which to pre- 
sent his editorial views. His editorials in 
the future as in the past will be worthy 
of note. 

He knows the Orient ' ^'ghly and 
he knows campus sentir is judg- 

ment is of the best and h a good 



In another week, sixteen men will re- 
ceive degrees from the College — the first 
diplomas ever to be awarded at any time 
other than at spring commencement. 
This ceremony will be one of the first 
tangible results of Bowdoin* s accelerated 
program. Certainly these men and the 
College deserve a great deal of commen- 
dation for such fine cooperation with the 
war effort. 

These sixteen have led the way, and 
it's up to the rest of us in school to fol- 
low their example. By making sacrifices, 
they are ready to offer their services to 
the country a full eight months ahead of 
schedule. It's for us now to follow their 
leadership by putting everything into 
our academic work, and to reach a more 
complete understanding of the problems 
before us. 

These sixteen have set the pace, and 
we should all fall in step. We all extend 
our heartiest congratulations to them at 

this time of graduation. And with the 
hope that ihey have the very best of luck 
goes the promise that we'll be with them 
.as soon as possible. R.L.E. 


The problem of the college under- 
graduate in relation to the war is today a 
very difficult one, and the longer the war 
continues the more difficult and complex 
this problem becomes. 

A great deal of disorder and confusion 
has arisen recently not only through a 
vacillating policy by the various service 
branches and the Selective Service Com- 
mission, but also through various con- 
flicting opinions and plans of civilian au- 
thorities and prominent educators. 

Although it is by no means universal, 
there is a general acknowledgment that 
the colleges can make a definite contri- 
bution during this war. In the August 
iasue of The Bowdoin Alumnus, Profes- 
sor Van Cleve has written a very enlight- 
ening article on this subject, entitled 
"The College and The War Effort." He 
says that the rather int. quality of 

leadership is perhaps tl *t benefit 

to be received from a rducation 

in preparation for tutu ^t. 

This is all very true, but the average 

college man is not consciously concerned 
about developing leadership in himself 
or anybody else. He is primarily interest- 
ed in acquiring definite knowledge and 
making as direct a contribution as pos- 
sible to the war program. And in the 
vast majority of colleges and universities 
his connection with the war program is 
extremely vague and tenuous. He is con- 
stantly being influenced by attractive of- 
fers of the Army, Navy, and Marines to 
enlist for immediate active service, not 
merely on an inactive reserve basis. 
President Hutchins of the University of 
Chicago has recognized certain faults in 
the present educational organization and 
has advocated various drastic changes in 
his "Blueprint for Wartime Education," 
published recently in The Saturday Eve- 
ning Post. 

He claims that in most cases father's 
bank account is the greatest surety to col- 
lege entrance, rather than inherent abil- 
ity and intelligence. He goes on to elab- 
orate a very definite program of revision. 
The draft age should be lowered to 
eighteen; college men should be enrolled 
only on competitive examination; these 
men should be enlisted as reservists and 
receive a private's pay; no voluntary en- 
listment for active service should be per- 
mitted; and some military training should 
be given, but the colleges should still per- 
form their main function — teaching. 
Regardless of certain merits and defects 
of such a program, it would, neverthe- 
less, bring the colleges and college men 
into more* direct contact with the war 

The subsidy of education by the fed- 
eral government is a matter of some im- 
portance, and one which was discussed 
extensively in Washington at the Insti- 
tute of Education and the War. Senator 
Elbert D. Thomas of Utah predicted that 
federal financial aid to colleges and uni- 
versities would soon be inaugurated. 
However, Harley L. Lutz, Princeton 
professor of public finance was not so 
optimistic, saying: "You should know 
that there can be nothing more than the 
thinnest camouflage in any scheme to 
save education by a federal subsidy un- 
less the federal finances are in such flour- 
ishing condition as to provide that sub- 
sidy out of a surplus of current revenue 
over other expenditures." 

The current belief that the draft age 
will soon be lowered to eighteen adds to 
the confusion of the college man, as does 
the increasingly wide-spread rumor that 
those in reserve branches will very likely 
be called before they graduate. Present 
circumstances seem to indicate that rela- 
tively little will be said about lowering 
the draft age between now and the No- 
vember elections, but soon after the 
measure may very likely be put into ef- 

Both President Roosevelt and Maj. 
General Lewis B. Hershey, head of the 
Selective Service Commission, have re- 
peatedly declared that college students 
should stay in college until they have 
completed their full course of study. But 
only last Thursday, Fowler Harper, dep- 
uty director of the War Manpower 
Commission under Paul McNutt, an- 
nounced tha't engineering and other tech- 
nical courses of special value in wartime 
will not in any way whatsoever guar- 
antee a student from being drafted before 

The average college man today is no 
less anxious to serve in the war effort 
than any other American. The value of 
wartime education in the colleges is 
clearly recognized by most. But definite 
plans for the utilization of college facil- 
ities run from one extreme to another, 
and the college man's status in relation 
to the armed forces of the country ap- 
pears to be constantly changing. 

Some changes may undoubtedly be 
caused by changes in the course of the 
war, but even this does not completely 
explain the general confusion and con- 
flicting policies. Meanwhile, the morale 
of present college men and prospective 
students is not being bolstered in any 
way, and it seems evident that a more 
definite and consistent program should 
be instituted. J.RJL 

Mustard & Cress 

By Bob Edwards 

The smell of fall has been in the air for the past few days, 
and the appearance of football uniforms is another reminder 
that this pioneer summer session is nearly over. How has it 

Most of as seem to have picked 
up a little learning, or we hope at 
least enough to stay with us until 
September 12. Of course the con- 
tinuity of the classes has been aid- 
ed by daily meetings, and at the 
same time, the professors have 
usually been able to remember 
which of their stock of stories has 
been sprung on that particular 
group. The innovation of short 
pants in the lecture halls caused 
some concern at first, but the ex- 
posed bronzed bodies seemed to ac- 
tually stimulate the desire for 

m - c 
As a matter of fact, the bronz- 
ing of this humanity was the 
College's idea in the first place. 
The athletic department was un- 
der strict orders to vitalize the 
student body as completely as 
possible and at the same time to 
graduate all as Junior Com- 
mandos. Along the same line, 
the long week-ends and Simp- 
son's Point were used to great 
advantage. Another sign of the 
times was the unprecedented ap- 
pearance of a number of under- 
graduates on the campus as 
early as seven o'clock every 
morning. Although all this health 
and vitality could not be diverted 

Into the regular organized ath- 
letic channels, we were glad to 
learn of the activities of a Var- 
sity Sailing Team. During their 
brief season, they have competed 
against almost all of the prom- 
inent colleges of the East, 
m - c 

A good deal of the traditional 
program has been carried out 
though, too. The Masque & Gown 
and the music department made 
an all out eff'-jrt to keep us cultur- 
ed. A bit of a fly in the traditional 
ointment has been the activities of 
a few fresh frosh, but we have a 
feeling that they will get their 
come uppance quite shortly. Anoth- 
er disturbing upset has been the 
startling and terrifying success of 
the A.D. softball club. But perhaps 
all of these minor confusions will 
iron out when we get back to the 
regular routine. 

m - c 
Of course there are a few 
things about the summer session 
that we will always remember — 
the Naval unit drill- on Friday 
afternoons — Sunday evening 
band concerts on the Mall with 
operators running wild — that 
August houseparty. Yes, it's been 
a great summer.

such-and-such he absolutely can- 
not lose, and will live in compara- 
tive peaco and brotherly love un- 
til graduation or the draft. All this 
must be done with the utmost 
smoothness, tact, and finesse, ac- 
companied by the line "We don't 
want to rush you into this; look 
iround all you want, but I think 
you'll find that ours is the house 
for you". If this doesn't get him, 
take him down to Ixmie's, buy 
him a drink, and tell him to go 
chase himself. 

Soon another three-day season 
on freshmen will begin. Most of 
the upperclassmen will be back 
early in order to be prepared for 
the advent of their future broth- 
ers. For the past few weeks, 
practically everyone has been 
writing friendly little notes to 
possible pledges, inviting them to 
show at this house or that to eat, 
talk with the boys, and see for 
themselves what a swell bunch of 
guys they are. For three days 
the freshmen will be king. He 

will be able to do no wrong. His 
wishes will be the commands of 
the upperclassmen. After those 
first days things will even up, 
however, for until January the 
freshman will be at the mercy of 
every upperclass whim; if he 
SUTVivos this ordeal, he will lw» 
made a trusty and may then live 
his life more or less as he pleases. 

After rushing is all over, there 
will inevitahly appear in the 
ORIENT the annual editorial de- 
ploring our abominable rushing 
system; alternate methods will be 
suggested. We will all read with 
avid interest ho\* the trick is 
done at Maine and other colleges. 
Just as inevitable as the article 
will be the reaction to it. Every- 
one will shake his head, say "It 
sure is a darn shame", and 
promptly forget" all about it, 
which Ls probably the best course 
to follow. On the whole, the 
Bowdoin rushing system is prob- 
ably just as good as any; none 
is perfect. . 

We are still a little hazy about 
what is meant by giving impres- 
sions. In fact, we aren't exact- 
ly sure whether the preceding 
stun* contains any impressions or 

By Don Sears 

Bowdoln's first summer school is 
drawing to a clo^e, and a success- 
ful close, we are agreed. Student 
interest has been high; ranks have 
been exceptional, as a glance at the 
long Dean's list will tell. Every- 
thing has been done to meet the 
special needs and problems of a 
war college. New courses have been 
added; old courses have been 
stepped up. Majors now become 
fields of concentration. Traditional 
requirements give way. And for 
these reasons the summer school 
of Bowdoin has been successful. 

s - r 


But in a few weeks now we 
will be returning to the old sys- 
tem, the old ways; we will be 
j back-tracking to traditionalism. 
I This may be necessary from the 
, standpoint of administration 
ease. We do not intend to examine 
i that here. We would like to point 
i out a matter of conservation. 

In these days we hear much of 
physical fitness, conservation of 
energy, and morale. These are as 
essential to efficient college work 
as they are to defense industry and 
war effort. One way of achieving 
them is through properly spaced 
vacations. We feel that most will 
agree that the omission of spring 
vacation last semester was a mis- 
take. After the winter grind, a 
change is needed for further ef- 
fective study. Going stale on stud- 
ies is a real thing. 

If this is true for last spring, 
how much more is it true of this 
fall. We are slated for a week's 
vacation between sessions. Well, 
we can get along on that if we 
have to; but it does look like a 
long stretch to that next vaca- 
tion atfehristmas time. From the 
point of health and study effi- 
ciency would it not he wise to 
shorten the first semester slight- 
ly in order to gain a little more 
time for vacations? 

s - r 

Here is a fact that is not being 
faced: Ranks last spring on the 
old semester basis without vaca- 
tion were nothing to boast about; 
Ranks this summer- under a new 
plan have surpassed all expecta- 
tions. Is this mere accident? We 
feel certain that it is not. Unless 
something is done to meet this 
squarely this fall will show a re- 
turn to the scholastic mediocrity 
of last year. A weary student can- 
not keep his eyes on five or six sub- 
jects, and come out with the ex- 
cellent results that he can get from 
a two-subject summer term. We 
are not threatening, if that is what 
it sounds like. We are stating. The 
College has this problem to face. 
It can meet it. by granting longer 
vacations, which might lie a tem- 
porary relief; or it can, as a re- 
cent Orient editorial advocated, set 
up the winter semesters on the 
summer basis.

The greatest Air Army in tin 


* Now Deferred Service Plan Allows You to Continue Your Education * 

In the ikies over America (he might- 
iest air fleet in die history of the 
world if mobilizing for victory! 

So fast is it growing that there is a 
place here — an urgent need here — 
for every college man fn America who 
can qualify for Officer's Training. 

The U. S. Army Air Forces need 
Flying, Officers and Ground Crew 
Officers. And many of them must 
come from die ranks of today's col- 
lege students — men who make their 
plans now for the necessary Aviation 
Cadet training. 

Thanks to a newly created Air 
Force Reserve plan, men of all classes 
— aged 18 to 26, inclusive — can en* 
list for immediate service or continue 
the scholastic work required for 
graduation before being called to 
active duty. 

Yon most meet the requirements 
for physical fitness, of course. In 
addition, yon take a new simplified 
test to determine your ability to grasp 
the training. A college man should 
pass it easily. 


Those accepted who wish immediate 
duty will go into training as rapidly 
as facilities permit. As an Aviation 
Cadet, yon are paid £75 a month, 
with subsistence, quarters, medical 
care, uniforms, e quip m en t. 

In 8 months you can win an offi- 
cer's commission as a bombardier, 
or pilot — and be well 
I on your way to serve , 

and advance yourself in aviation. 

Three Enlistment Plans 
for College Men 

Juniors— Sophomores— Freshmen 
May Continue Their Education 

1. A new plan allows Juniors, 
Sophomores and Freshmen, aged 
18 to 26, inclusive, to enlist in the 
Arr Force Enlisted Reserve and 
continue their schooling, pro- 
vided they maintain satisfactory 
scholastic standings. 

All College Mas May Enlist 
far Immediate Service 

2. AH college stbdents may enlist 
ma privates in the Army Air Forces 
(onaseigned) and serve there un- 
til their turns come for Aviation 
Cadet training. , 

3. All college students may enlist 
in the Air Force Enlisted Reserve 
and wait until ordered to report 
for Aviation Cadet training. 

Upon graduation or withdrawal 
from college, men will be assigned 
to active duty at a training center 
as facilities become available. 

If the necessity of war demands, 
the deferred status in the Army 
Reserve may be terminated at any 
time by the Secretary of War.

Athletic Office Makes 
Reserve Ticket Plans 

Application blanks for reserved 
seat football tickets, about which 
some inquiry has already been 
made, are to be sent out early 
next week. The closing. date will 
be a week before each game, to 
be sure of getting reserved seats. 
Although the demand for reservv 
ed seats is less this season due 
to the uncertainty of the future, 
the department would still like to 
have the seats bought, and has of- 
fered to refund money on tickets 
returned as late as the mail on 
the morning of the Saturday of 
the game. The Maine game as 
usual will be the only game for 
which a limit will be placed on 
the \iumber of reserved seat 
tickets that any one individual 
may buy. 

The grandstand, which seats 
less than 600, is reserved for the 
older alumni. Tickets are issued 
to the oldest classes first, and 
usually all the seats are taken by 
the time it gets around to the 
class of 1910 or '12. The Blanket 
tax cannot be applied toward. the 
purchase of grandstand seat 

At the present, all scheduled 
Varsity football games are to be 
played at the time and place 
originally planned. No games 
scheduled to be played in Bruns- 
wick will be played elsewhere, in 
spite of current discussion. Al- 
though Varsity and J. V. games 
will be played as usual in all 
sports except Hockey, there are 
to be NO Freshman teams this 
year. Hockey has been discon- 
tinued because, with only one 
other Maine college supporting a 
team, transportation has become 
too difficult and expensive. 

Veterans Rivalled By Frosh 
And Sophs For Positions 

By Hal Curtis 

With three weeks of conditioning under their belts al- 
ready and with another four weeks of practice coming up be- 
fore the first game on September 26, the Big White football 
team should be well-trained and well-conditioned. With many 
lettermen back and working out now and with more key men 
returning after Labor Day, Coaches Adam Walsh and 
"Dinny" Shay should be well set for a starting eleven for the 
opening game against Tufts. 

tile you're keeping 
fit.. .pause and 

Despite the fact that there are 
lettermen for nearly every posi- 
tion, there will, probably be many 
changes in the lineup. At the end 
posts, there are the veterans Co- 
captain George Altman and "Cy" 
Young, both of whom are fast, 
proven and capable pass-receivers 
with Altman excelling defensive- 
ly. Pushing AKman for starting 
positions are Walter Flnnegan, up 
from last year's Freshmen, and 
Bill Moody, a big rangy Fresh- 
man. Young will get much com- 
petition from veteran Thayer 
Francis and from Sophomore Jeff 
Power, who looked very good in 
the Frosh-Sophomore tilt last 
year. Walter Morgan from iast 
year's Frosh will also be back to 
bolster the flanks in the fall. 

Although last year's tackles 
were weak, there seems to be an 
indication that these posts will 
be well manned this fall. There 
are two lettermen: Bill Simonton 
and "Doc" Gauvreau. Simonton, 
while big and experienced, may 
well be pushed out of a starting 
post by Brad Hunter, whom 
Walsh has shifted from end to 
tackle. Hunter looks good. He 
weighs about one-ninety and is 
very fast and aggressive. Also 
out for this post is Tom Bartlett, 
first string on last year's fresh- 
men eleven. The substitute at 
the other tackle is Bill Bailey a 
sopomore. The tackles who have 
not returned for practice are Pete 
Angeramo and Rog Gerritson. 

There are' six men out at the 
present time who are showing up 
well in the guard positions. Of 

these. George Hutchings and 
"Dee" Minich look like the best. 
Defensively they should be as fine 
a pair of guards as Bowdoin hars 
seen in years. Behind these boys, 
there are Bob Bassinette, who 
saw a lot of service last fall, 
Ross Hubbard, from the Frosb of

year, and "Red" Staples, a short, 
stocky freshman. Two more top 
men will be back in the fall,' Bud 
Vath and John Anderson, the 
starters on the Freshman team 
of last season. 

The center position Jooks as if 
it might be the strong point of 
the line. Heading the list of men 
for that post is "Pat" Grondin, a 
stellar performer and Captain of 
last year's Frosh. At present he 
is being pressed by Dick Berry 
and will be further pushed by 
Dick Gingras and Bob O'Brien, 
both of whom played a lot on last 
year's eleven. 

In the baekfield, there is speed, 
and more speed. The potential 
baekfield is made up of Dick 
Johnstone at quarter. Brad 
Briggs and Co-captain Jim Dolan 
at the halfback slots, and Bill 
Elliott at full. Johnstone, picked 
on the "Orient" All-Maine team 
of last fall along with George 
Altman, is a triple threat man. 
Briggs and Dolan are among the 
fastest men in College. Dolan is 
of course the more experienced 
of the two, but Briggs might very 
well be the climax runner on the 
squad. In Elliott, Walsh has a 
man who last year was one of the 
better blocking backs of the state 
and who this year looks like an- 
other Andy Haldane. He is big, 
rugged, and hard-running as well 
as being one of the most vicious 
tacklers on the squad. In Jim 
Pierce, a freshman, Walsh has a 
capable triple-threat back. Pierce 
may work into a starting position 
for he passes, kicks, and runs well. 
Behind these men there are cap- 
able men: Otis Putnam and Fred 
Dickson from last year's Frosh. 
Walt Donahue, a letterman who 
saw a lot of service last year, 
and Walt Daniels. There is an- 
other freshman. Bud Sweet who 
has shown up fairly well. Bill 
Beckler, a letterman at guard last 
year, has been shifted to quar- 
terback, a position which he play- 
ed his freshman year as well as 
in prep school. There are also 
proven men returning in Bill Tal- 
cott and Mel Weiner. 

Of course Coach Walsh will 
probably make more changes be- 
fore the opening game, but the 
team looks well rounded and po- 
tentially, defensively and offen- 
sively, it looks good.

was certainly the best, for the 
first act was very slow getting

completely into farce with the

that Charles T. Ireland, Jr.,

zie Fraser VIII, the hero. Neither 
voice nor body had flexibility, nor 
did he show much facial expres- 
sion. The part was long and it 
was to some extent repetitions 
and it needed much more varia- 
tion to keep it from monotony. 
Many of the other characters 
couldn't be heard. 

The production of a student 
written full length play is always 

interesting and often exciting. 
Bowdoin has a worthy series of 
such plays and Douglas Car- 
michael's adds one more to it. 
"Shepherd of my People" is cer- 
tainly worth the fine production 
it had, and it is good enough to 
make one hope that its author 
will learn much from seeing it in 
action and be dissatisfied enough 
to go at it again.

Freshmen, Sophomores. 17 thru 19. Enlist now! 

Stay in college! You may qualify for a 

Naval Commission on the sea or in the air. 

Sophomores. Here's a 
challenge — and an opportunity! 
Your Navy needs trained men. 
Trained men to become Naval 
Officers! And your college is ready 
to give you that training now. 

Here's New Navy Plan 

If you're 17 and not yet 20, you en- 
list now as an Apprentice Seaman 
in the Naval Reserve. You then 
continue in college, including in 
your studies courses stressing phys- 
ical training, mathematics and 
physics. After you successfully 
complete 1 H calendar years of col- 
lege work, you will be given a clas- 
sification test. 

. Aviation Officers 

If you qualify by this teat, you 
may volunteer to become a Naval 
Aviation Officer. In this case, you 
will be permitted to finish the sec- 
ond calendar year of college work 

before you start your training to 
become a Flying Officer. 

However, at any time during 
this two-year period after you have 
reached your 18th birthday, you 
may, if you so desire, take the pre- 
scribed examination for Aviation 
Officer . . . and, if successful, be 
assigned for Aviation training. Stu- 
dents who fail in their college 
courses, or who withdraw from 
college, will also have the privilege 
of taking the Aviation examination. 

Deck or Engineering Officers 

If you qualify in the classifica- 
tion test and do not volunteer for 

Aviation, you wjll be selected for 
training as a Deck or Engineer- 
ing Officer, In that case, you will 
continue your college program 
until you receive your bachelor's 
degree, provided you maintain the 
established university standards. 

Other Opportunities 

If you do not qualify as either po- 
tential Aviation Officer or as poten- 
tial Deck or Engineering Officer 
you will be permitted to finish your 
second calendar year of college 
and will then be ordered to active 
duty as Apprentice Seamen. But, 
even in this event, because of your 
college training, you will have a 
better chance for advancement. 

Pay starts with active duty. 

It's a real challenge! It's a real 
opportunity! Make every minute 
count by doing something about 
this new Navy plan today.

Respectfully and truly 
Jefferson Davis 

Jefferson Davis, who had been 
Secretary of War 1853-57 under 
Franklin Pierce, 14th President 
of the United States and Bowdoin 
graduate of the class of 1824, was 
in Portland in 1856, visiting 
friends from the South who were 
accustomed to make it their sum- 
mer home, and recovering from 
ill-health. He decided to attend 
Commencement here. Since it 
would have been in the nature of 
a personal insult to ignore a man 
of his position and ability when 
he was on the campus during 
Commencement, the Board of 
Trustees voted him the honorary 
degree of LL.D. Since his views 
on slavery were diametrically op- 
posed to those of the people of 
Maine, (although he did not air 
them much, and made a show of 
love of the Union) the Board also 
voted the same degree to William 
Pitt Fessenden, class of 1823 and 
Republican Senator from Maine 
at the time. 

During the Civil War much 
pressure was put upon the College 
to revoke the degree, as many 
other colleges had done, and the 
matter was brought before the 
Board of Trustees once, but they 
decided that Mr. Davis had been 
entirely worthy of the degree at 
the time it was conferred, and 
that since the degree stood for 
life his later actions had no bear- 
ing on the matter, and so the de- 
gree stood.

The short, between-the-sessions vacation will be further 
abbreviated by the fraternities' need and yen for pledges. Fra- 
ternity men will hardly have set foot upon homeland soil be- 
fore they must about face and return to Bowdoin, all of 

which points out another disadvantage to the rushing system. 
Wouldn't things be much more pleasant if we all signed a 
pact not to do any pledging until, say, Tuesday . . .

The Laugh of the Summer has 
been the amusing entertainment 
put on by the Navy bugler who 
has tried hard, but failed to make 
it. With so many former Boy 
Scouts joining the armed forces, 
it is surprising that the Bowdoin 
Navy group has failed to find a 
bugler, i. e. one who can play a 
bugle. Incidentally, Brunswick is 
shortly to lose one of its ice cream 
parlors. The 10-year-old business

Rejuvenated Big White Opens Season With 13-0 Victory Over Tufts 

Dotal and Pierce Lead 
Polar Bear Backfield 
In Strong Offensive 


By Jim Hlggias 

Bowdoin's varsity football team 
got back into the winning column 
after last year's long string of con- 
secutive defeats, and it was done 
with a vengeance as the Big 
White crushed Tufts College. 13-0. 
last Saturday afternoon at Whit- 
tier Field. Freshman Jim Pierce, 
playing at left halfback, was the 
outstanding star of the game, scor- 
ing both of the Polar Bear touch- 
downs, the first coming on a bril- 
liant 43-yard gallop in the second 
period and the last on a plunge 
from the one-foot line in the fourth 

Bowdoin wasted no time in get- 
ting started, while Tufts was never 
able to penetrate inside the Big 
White 35-yard line until the wan- 
ing minutes of the game. Pierce re- 
turned the opening kickoff 45 yards 
to the Jumbo 46, and the Polar 
Bears relinquished possession of 
the ball only after they had driven 
deep into Tufts' territory. A second 
Bowdoin scoring threat missed fire 
when Jimmy Dolan's fumble was 
recovered by Tony DeTeso during 
the first part of the second period, 
on the Tufts 14. But the Big White 
was not to be denied the third time,

Self Exposure Brings Reporter 
Inside Story On Frosh Hazing 

Every now and then, the Orient 
runs features on quaint customs 
and people, which are avidly read 
by a starved undergraduate body. 
This subject seems to be quite 
popular. Today, we have another 
in this series of quaint customs, 
and this one is particularly 
apropos at this time, being Quaint 
Custom No. 284 M, commonly 
known to the layman as Fresh- 
man Riding. 

No subject we could choose 
would be more popular, especially 
to the freshmen themselves, who 
read this as they stand in fra- 
ternity houses over the length and 
breadth of our fair land. (The 
reason they stand instead of sit 
is rather obvious and occasionally 

We just happened to drop into 
one of our fraternity houses the 
other night to visit a friend who 
had some things we wanted to 
copy (an assignment, a recipe for 
toll-house cookies, and his girl- 
friend's address), and while there, 
he invited us to stay for supper. 
Nothing loath, we consented, and 
spent a quiet ten minutes slurp- 

ing soup and stabbing men's 
hands who reached for the suc- 
culent roll we had our eyes on. 
But the peace didn't last for long. 
A wild-eyed individual, shabbily- 
clad in a zoot suit, with fanatical 
zeal burning in his left eye, con- 
temptible scorn in his right, rose 
to his feet and shouted, "Throck- 
morton, front and centre!" 


Immediately from all corners 
of the huge vaulted dining-room, 
hung with crystal chandeliers, 
brothers took up the cry. The 
poor freshman, taken by surprise, 
staggered to his feet, chewing 
frantically, and stood quietly with 
a piece of moth-eaten lettuce 
hanging from his mouth. Here- 
upon he was subjected to a close 
scrutiny by the brothers, com- 
pelled to remove his tie because 
it was too -flashy. (Ourselves, we 
never saw a brighter shade of 
black.) Then the fun began. He 
sang, whistled, and told a very 
funny joke about an errant can- 
vasser, which I laughed heartily 
at. However, I was the only

AT THE freshman smoker held 
by the B.C.A. in the Moulton Un- 
ion lounge on the evening of Wed- 
nesday, Sept 23, James D. Dolan, 
Jr., president of the Student Coun- 
cil, and speaking to the freshmen 
on the activities of that body stat- 
ed that "the primary function of 
the Council is to enforce the fresh- 
man rules." His speech was also 
notable for the manner in which it 
slurred over the circumstances sur- 
rounding the demise of the late un- 
lamented S.C.D.C. It seems official 
now .that the Council itself will 
take over the work of the so-called 
Student Council Disciplinary Com- 
mittee, which to the best of our 
knowledge never had more than 
one member from the Council, act- 
ed as both judge and jury in all 
cases brought before, completely 
ignored the judicial principal that 
a specific offense should have a 
specific penalty determined by sta- 
tute, was rife with partiality and 
fraternity politics, and in general 
existed as a sort of legalized Phi 

AND NOW the Student Council. 
presumably the college's leading 
organization, has, in the words of 
its presiding officer, nothing better 
to do than ride herd on about 175 
freshmen. About half of the Stu- 
dent Council's freshman rules are 
admirable; our only regret is that 
they are not applied to the entire 
college. It would make for a much 
trimmer, more orderly student 
study. The other half are simply 
ridiculous. (Which category each 
rule falls under win be specified on 
request) But the upshot of it all 
is that the controlling elements of 
the Student Council seem determ- 

ined to continue freshman hazing 
as far as possible and to degrade 
their organization to the position 
of a mere body of constabulary. 
Unless their methods are radically 
different from those of the 

S.C.D.C., this seems bound to oc- 

a - r 

LAST SPRING the Student 
Council ruled that all hazing, ex- 
cept on Hell Day, should be limited 
to one hour a week exclusive of 
meals. The penalty for breaking 
this rule may extend to loss of 
houseparty privileges for the fra- 
ternity involved. This is certainly 
a long step in the right direction. 
We wonder, however, just what 
provisions the Student Council is 
taking to enforce this rule. We 
would recommend that the pres- 
ence of a Council member from 
another fraternity be required at 
all hazing sessions from now on, 
and that freshmen be encouraged 
to report, anonymously if they 
choose, any violations they notice. 
■ a - r 

NO FRESHMAN needs to sub- 
mit to hazing against his will. If 
a sizable proportion of a freshman 
delegation threatens to turn in 
their pledge pins rather than sub- 
mit to hazing and show that they 
mean it. a fraternity will stand on 
its neck rather than lose them, es- 
pecially in these times when 
pledges are scarce. There are al- 
ways, of course, some freshmen 
who actually enjoy hazing, or con- 
sider it a port of college life they 
shouldn't miss. Such persons, we 
suggest, should be allowed to haze 
each other at their discretion. In

At a smoker given at the Union 
last Monday night, September 28, 
members of the entering class 
were urged to join the Masque 
and Gown. The meeting was ad- 
dressed by the members of the 
executive committees. Two va- 
cancies in the committee were 
filled. Norman O. Gauvreau '43 
succeeded Richard W. Hyde as 
Senior Member-at-Large, a n iJ 
Frederick A. Morcombe *43' be- 
came the new Production Mana- 
ger, succeeding John Hoopes. 

Lillian Hellman's "Watch on

during the summer session, will be 
repeated on October 16 at 8:15 P. 
M. <in Memorial Hall. The fathers 
of the Bowdoin students are to be 
00 the campus this same week 
end. : 

The cast will be the same as 
before, with but three exceptions. 
Stephen Merrill, a former presi- 
dent of the Masque and Gown, and 
Mrs. Manning Smith will fill the 
parts formerly taken by Professor 
and Mrs. Lusher. Professor Lush- 
er has been called into the service. 
Howard Huff "43 will replace Bill 
McKeown, who graduated at the 
end of the summer session. 

The Masque and Gown will 
dedicate the present season to the 
memory of Mr. James A. Bartlett 
'08 who died recently in Newton, 
Mass. Mr. Bartlett was the found- 
er and first president of the or- 
ganization in 1906 and was re- 
elected president in 1908. 

Fewer Trees, New Desks 
On Improved Campus 

Due to the war and priorities 
on most building materials, im- 
provements on the campus have 
been few in number, and this con- 
dition is due to continue for the 
duration of the war. 

Two improvements of note, 
however have been made this past 
summer. The proceeds from a 
fund of $2500. the gift of Mr. Wal-

Andre Michalopoulos, Minister 
Of Information in the Greek Ca- 
binet in exile, addressed students 
and townspeople last Friday night 
at Memorial Hall, on "Greece in 
the War." 

Mr. Michalopoulos, who has re- 
cently come to this country in his 
official capacity to make speeches 
on behalf of the Greek Govern- 
ment, was introduced by President 
Kenneth C. M. Sills. His talk cov- 
ered the events of the Battle of 
Greece in chronological order 
from the attack by Italy late in 
1940 to the present. Beginning 
with a description of the treach- 
erous attack from Albania by the 
Italian forces, he narrated several 
incidents of the Greek campaign 
against Italy, including a descrip- 
tion of the methods of operation 
of the Greek mountain troops and 
the story of the ironic trap into 
which a full division of Mussolini's 
crack troops were led. Mr. Mich-

A smoker will be held in 
the lounge of Moulton 

Thursday Eve., Oct. 1 

at 8:15 for all those inter- 
ested in trying out for 
both the business and 

editorial staff of the 


Donovan D. Lancaster, manager 
of the Moulton Union, today an- 
nounced several changes in the 
administration of the Union. To 
fit the new class schedule the can- 
teen opens at 7:00 A. M. for 
breakfast and is operated until 

The Thorndike Club Dining 
Table is running in the Assembly 
Room on the third floor and the 
main dining room is operated 
noon and night with waiter ser- 
vice for navy men, faculty and oc- 
casional guests. 

Two marked changes are made 
because of the war. The faculty 
dining room operated mainly for 
the younger unmarried faculty 
has been closed because most of 
these men are in the armed forces. 
However, provision has been made 
for special faculty or college lun- 
cheons or dinners with 24 hours 
notice either in the faculty room 
or in the former Masque and 
Gown room on the third floor. 
This former Masque and Gown 
room is now available for Mr. 
Quinby's office has been moved 
to Memorial Hall. The room has 
been redecorated and refurnished 
to be used normally as a small 
lounge and on particular occasions 
as a dining room. 

The second difference in the 
dining situation at the Union is 
the abandonment of the training 
tables. The College wishes to 
help the fraternities as much as 
possible to keep their individual 
dining rooms operating so at a 
meeting of fraternity and College 
officials this fall it was stated 
there would be no training tables 
this year, thus eliminating this 
competition with the fraterni- 

At the first meeting of the fall 
term last Monday night, the Stu- 
dent ; Council made plans for the 
enforcement of freshmen rules, 
thus assuming all responsibility 
formerly held by the Student 
Council Disciplinary Committee. It 
was also decided to hold football 
dances in the gym after each of 
the remaining home games. 

Working in cooperation with 
the administration of the college, 
the Council has agreed to place 
less emphasis on the hazing as- 
pect of freshmen rule enforce- 
ment, and instead will try to 
judge the individual problems by 
careful consideration of each 
case. Violators will report be- 
fore the assembled group and will 
be asked to justify their actions. 
Punishments will be determined 
by the seriousness of the situa- 
tion. Meetings of the group will 
be held weekly beginning on Octo- 
ber 5. 

At their regular meeting, the 
Council decided to hold the cus- 
tomary football dances .this fall, 
and it was reported that the Bow- 
dofn Polar Bears have been con- 
tracted to furnish the music. It 
was also announced that there 
will be no Proclamation night this 
fall, but that freshman rules will 
continue in effect until the Maine 
game for the summer freshmen, 
and until midyear for men just

College Awards 
New Scholarships 

Donovan D. Lancaster, Director 
of Student Aid, announced Monday 
that scholarships .totalling $10,000 
were awarded September 19 for 
the first semester. Beginning with 
the summer term awards are be- 
ing made in advance at the begin- 
ning of each semester for that se- 
mester. In January grants will be 
distributed for the second semes- 
ter of this year. 

Special awards which must be 
made according to the terms set 
up by the donors of these funds 
were given as follows: 

Emery Scholarship — "to an in- 
dividual boy to be selected by the 
Dean"— William T. Talcott, Jr. '45, 
Winthrop, Mass. 

Kling Scholarships — for free tui- 
tion and books to students of Co- 
lonial or Revolutionary Ancestry 
—Edwin S. Briggs '45. Waltham, 
Mass.; Philip J. Clough '43, Bur- 
lington. Vermont; Robert W. Max- 
well '43, Auburn, Mass.; Hugh 
Pendexter III. '46. Philadelphia, 
Penna.; Alan S. Perry '44, Barn- 
stable. Mass.; Philip H. Philbin '45. 
Lowell, Mass. 

Scholarships were given both to 
those who attended summer 
school and to those who were not 
here. In all cases need was deter- 
mined by letters from parents. In 
determining the awards, the grades 
of both summer session and second 
semester last year were used in 
case of summer session attendants 
while only the latter grades were 
used for non summer school men. 

Naval Officers To Visit 
Campus For Interview 

Lieutenant E. H. Barry of the 
Office of Naval Officer Procure- 
ment in Boston announces that 
shortly representatives of the 
Navy will visit the campus to in- 
terview men interested in the V-* 
program. Until such time, fresh- 
men and sophomores are advised to 
get in touch with Associate Pro- 
fessor Nathaniel C. Kendrick. 

Lieutenant Barry said that he 
realizes that it is difficult fon 
young men to know which way to 
turn during these troublesome 
times, but he went on to state that 
the Navy wants as many as possi- 
ble to stay in College and to work 
hard. He says that these men will 
be commissioned Ensigns soon af- 
ter graduation. 

"Until then, prepare yourself for 
the job at hand — the job of win- 
ning this war — by applying your- 
self diligently to your studies and 
your athletics as prescribed by the 
College. Gentlemen, of the Fresh* 
man Class of Bowdoin, the Navy 
wishes you good luck, smooth sail- 
ing, and God speed."

Warns Bowdoin In Midst 
Of Rapidly-Changing World 

Bowdoin College officially opened its 149th year last 
Thursday as President Kenneth C. M. Sills addressed 500 
members of the student body in chapel on the subject, "The 
Function of the Liberal Arts College under the Changing Con- 
ditions of Wartime." He warned that college students are 
often considered by outsiders as living "on borrowed time," 
and urged that undergraduates do not lose their faith in an

Mrs. Roosevelt 
To Speak Here 
In November 

Late in November or early in 
December, Mrs. Franklin D. Roo- 
sevelt, is scheduled to give a lect- 
ure here at Bowdoin. The lecture 
is sponsored by the Delta Upsi- 
lon fraternity. A former member 
of the Bowdoin chanter has given 
a fund, whose yearly yield of $100 
enables the fraternity to bring 
some well known national figure 
to the campus. 

This invitation was sent to Mrs. 
Roosevelt by Frank D. McKeon 
and her provisional acceptance 
was quite a surprise to the fra- 

Preceding the lecture there will 
be a, banquet at the D.U. house. 
The subject of Mrs. Roosevelt's 
lecture is not known, but it will 
be on some current topic. After 
the lecture, there will be a buf- 
fet supper, to which the members 
of the faculty and their wives are 
invited. Governor Sewall is also 
expected to be present. All these 
plans are still provisional. 

Speaking first on the actual 
changes in the college President 
Sills said that "We are in the 
midst of unprecedented times do- 
ing unprecedented things". He 
cited the fact that this was the 
first time that the college had 
opened without a new building or 
other actual physical improve- 
ments to offer, although it is more 
than fortunate to be able to pro- 
ceed with the grading of the 
northern end of the campus which 
is the gift of Mr. Walter Went- 
worth resident of Old Town and 
an overseer of the college. He 
also pointed out that this was the 
first time that members of the 
Freshman Class, entering in June, 
will be able to participate in var- 
sity athletics; the first time that 
men have returned to the college 
without the usual lengthy summer 
recess, and the first time that men 
of the same chronological class 
are returning a semester's work 
ahead of or behind their classmates. 
Perhaps the most drastic change 
mentioned by the President was 
the fact that to date almost one- 
fourth of the faculty has left to 
join the various armed forces of 
the nation at war. Among these 
are: Professors Van Cleve, Bart- 
lett, Abramson. and Sllby; Doc- 
tors Stallnecht, Taylor, and 
Miller; and Messrs. Wells, Farley, 
and Wilder. To these men Presi- 
dent Sills extended the confidence 
and good wishes of the college. 

Addressing the student body on 
the "Function of the College At 
War", the President said that peo- 
ple on the outside are apt to con- 
sider college students as a group 
enjoying special privileges while 
most men of their age have al- 
ready been recruited or drafted 
into the armed services, and that 
it is our duty to convince our- 
selves that what we are doing 
here is worthwhile and live up to 
this conviction that we may avoid 
the tragedy of popular loss of 
faith in the worthiness of a lib- 
eral college education, the true 
education of the free man in a 
free state.

Victorious Polar Bears Primed 
For Encounter With Wesleyan 

By Eb Ellis 

With the football season suc- 
cessfully underway, the Bowdoin 
Varsity journey this week end to 
Middletown, Connecticut, to en- 
counter the Wesleyan Cardinals 
on their home ground. Viewing 
the results of the 1941 Bowdoin- 
Wesleyan duel and with last 
Saturday's exhibition vividly im- 
pressed on our minds still, we can 
with some assuredness look for- 
ward to a close game and a pos- 
sible second victory. The trip to 
Wesleyan will be the only trip 
that the Polar Bears will make 
out of the state. Williams and 
Amherst are in turn for a visit 
at Whittier field. 

Looking over the records and 
statistics of the last year in try- 
ing to determine our chances for 
a win, we come up against the 
fact that this will be Wesleyan's 
Coach Fisher second year at the 
Cardinals helm and therefore we 
should expect to find a better or- 
ganized and coordinating team. 
The fact that they have suffered 
the losses due to armed forces 
and graduation exceDtion ally 
light, is another factor contribut- 
ing to a strong squad. Missing 
from the Cardinals backfield will 
be last year's main threat, Cap- 
tain Jim Carrier, 206 pounds, who 
completed eleven of 33 attempted 
passes last year. Others missing 
from the starting lineup are Doug 
McKelcan, back; Bediant, guard; 
and Kay, guard. Three substi- 
tutes who saw action against the 
Big White squad last year have 
also left the Cardinal's ranks. 
Those who have had varsity ex- 
perience on the Cardinal lineup 
and who will be on the squad next 

Saturday hoping for a crack at 
the Bowdoin squad number 16. 
seven of whom started against 
the Polar Bears last year. The 
veteran seven are Laggren, end; 
Stuart, and Hessenbruch. tackles: 
Clute, guard; Conklin, center; and 
Hickey and Heaton. backs. New- 
comers to the Wesleyan line this 
year and who are well worth 
watching this year are ends 
Blelock and Satterthwaite, tackle 
Benson, center Medd. guard Van- 
Tassle; whereas Fisher, Morton. 
Cain, and Sadowski strengthen 
the backfield. 

Looking over the records of last 
year's game, although Bowdoin 
won 13-7. the tilt was no push- 
over. In first downs Wesleyan 
tallied 13 to Bowdoin's mere 4. 
Bobby Bell made the first touch- 
down after a pass interception 
and Bunting converted. The re- 
maining 6 points were added as 
a result of a spectacular 75 yard 
run by Ed Martin and the con- 
version failed. 

Only four of this year's present 
lineup started the game against 
the Middletown team a year ago. 
and of that four only George 
Hutchings '43 is playing the same 
position. Dee Minch t "43 who 
started as center has been shifted 
this year to left guard position; 
Brad Hunter is playing tackle; 
and Bill Elliot has moved into 
fullback position. Besides these 
four veterans 10 other Polar 
Bears saw action a year ago 
waiting their turn for a crack at 
a repeated victory. 

This year's team seems, to an 
against the Cardinals who will be 
amateur's eye, to be better or-

Managing Editor of this Issue, G. W. Craigie, Jr. 
Vol. LXXII Wednesday, Sept. SO, 1942 No. 19 


This is a time for action, not words. 

We are at war; many members of the 

faculty are in the services; young and old 

alumni are distinguishing themselves at 

-the fronts; Bowdoin men have given 

their lives — what is there left to say? 

Ordinarily the editor selects the first 
fall issue of the paper as a time to air his 
ideas of such campus problems as rush- 
ing, hazing, school spirit, and the ad- 
vantages of a liberal arts education. Such 
comments now seem entirely irrelevant. 
Although these questions doubtlessly are 
still far from being solved, we may well 
turn our attention to more important 
current affairs. 

As a matter of fact, how many un- 
dergraduates have actually shifted gears 
and fallen in step with the war program? 
It's too easy to slip into the comparative- 
ly leisurely habits of the former educa- 
tional routine, but those who haven't ad- 
justed themselves to the times, may be 
soon called on to give strict account of 
their actions. Certainly the College is do- 
ing its part to aid the war effort. New 
courses and modified curriculum require- 
ments are proving invaluable for the 
freshmen who are intent on matriculat- 
ing as soon as possible. 

Those who attended the summer ses- 
sion realize the necessity for constant ap- 
plication to their work. Upperclassmen 
are digging in with the hope of getting 
through before being called into service. 
First year men will do well, too, to make 
themselves as secure as possible by inves- 
tigating the various reserve plans and se- 
lecting courses wisely. There is little 
doubt now but that the eighteen year 
olds will be called by the first of the year. 

Oi course there are many means beside 
actual enlistment by which we can ma- 
terially aid the war effort. As students 
here it is our duty to keep well informed 
on the trends of the war, of diplomatic 
agreements, of proposals for the peace 
settlement. We can help ksep up the 
morale of the men in service by writing 
aften to friends in the armed forces. All 
of us can aid by donating blood to the 
Red Cross; by starting collections of 
War Stamps and Bonds. Above all, it is 
our duty to face the facts and to gain a 
full understanding of our situation. 

It is interesting to realize that the un- 
dergraduates who returned to the cam- 
pus in the fall of 1917 were faced with 
many of the problems that confront us 
now. A selection from an Orient ed- 
itorial entitled "Our 'Raison d'EtrV " 
read as follows: "Have we a right to be 
here? . . . (we must force ourselves) to 
a most earnest application to the real 
things for which the college stands." 
What more need be said then — or now? 

Whether those men met the challenge 
of their day has been questioned, but the 
fact remains that many of those who 
were instructors here twenty-five years 
ago are still in college. Certainly these 
people understand what lies before us 
and are well qualified to guide our ef- 
forts. We must follow them carefully, 
too. In no time in the past has the posi- 
tion of the small liberal arts college been 
challenged so severely as today. While 
previously we welcomed those who 
were prone to discuss the academic 
questions connected with the adminis- 
tration of such an institution, we now 
feel that such comment is out. of place. 
It's up to us to prove by action — not 
words — that we are justified in staying 
in Bowdoin. 

In the line of direct duty we must pre- 
pare ourselves mentally and physically 
for service in the armed forces. Let's find 
something to grasp and to save for the 
future. Above all, let's forget the petty 
troubles of regular college days, and di- 
rect all of our efforts toward a complete 
fulfillment of wartime obligations. 

There can be no question of what is 
required. Let's see some action. 


As usual at the opening of the school 
year, there has been a great deal of talk 
recently about the coming football week- 
ends, about Christmas houseparty plans, 
and even of proposals for some sort of 
mid-winter affair. Typical of the policy 
of past years, these functions have been 
played up highly, and if all suggestions 
were carried out, Bowdoin would see a 
social season far exceeding those of other 

Before even considering the feasi- 
bility of these plans let's look at the 
status of college life in general during 
the present times. Have we the right to 
consider spending large amounts of 
money for dances and parties? To be 
sure, the necessary funds may rightfully 
belong to us, and a few years ago could 
have been used fairly indiscriminately. 
Now, however, the government has an 
option on a great deal of our time, and 
we are held directly accountable for our 
actions more than ever. 

Because of this situation, several 
large schools have already voted as a 
body not to hold large college house- 
parties for the duration. Perhaps such a 
plan at Bowdoin would not prove satis- 
factory, but at the same time we must 
adjust our policies in direct alignment 
with public sentiment. 

We have been warned time and again 
that outsiders are watching us very 
critically, and certainly no little appre- 
hension is shown towards the house- 
party program of former times. People 
will show little sympathy — and rightly 
so — toward such great expenditures of 
time and money. The parents of a boy 
bivouacked in Australia need not be ex- 
pected to tolerate such action. 

Not only do we stand trial concerning 
these social functions, but also as the 
very right to continue operation as a lib- 
eral arts college. A certain amount of 
freedom might well be granted to en- 
gineering schools or colleges specialising 
in highly technical training, but there are 
those who may hesitate to commend our 
position. It's up to us to prove that we 
are justified in being here before we ask 
for special privileges. 

Not only will our action be challenged 

in regard to the spending of so much time 
and money, but also in the employment 

of materials directly needed for the war 

Few tangible results of our patriot- 
ism are noticeable to the layman, and it 
seems that a definite statement concern- 
. ing a curtailment of the houseparty pro- 
gram would be much in our favor. Let's 
show that we're here (or business, and 
that we sincerely appreciate the oppor- 
tunity to complete our education. 



(Editors' note: This column 
will be featured weekly as a 
means of acquainting under- 
graduates with the latest de- 
velopments pertaining to the 
war effort here at College.) 
Professor Nathaniel C. Ken- 
drick, faculty director of the re- 
serve program, released recently 
a statement concerning various 
aspects o£ the service opportuni- 
ties for men in College. He re- 
ported that the number of enlist- 
ed men in school is approaching 
200, and he explained that this 
total will be sizeably increased 
when freshmen begin to enlist. 
The following is an outline of the 
various programs: 

Navy — The V-l program is still 
open to freshmen and sophomores, 
while the V-5 and V-7 opportuni- 
ties are available for juniors and 
seniors. Men enlisting in V-5 are 
allowed to graduate, while the V-5 
are available for juniors and sen- 
iors. Men enlisting in V-7 are al- 
lowed to graduate, while the V-5 
candidates are assured of finishing 
out the year in which they en- 
list. Men in the V-7^_and V-l pro- 
grams may transfer at will to the 
V-5 section. Although the Navy 
has not announced an intention of 
withdrawing the privileges of 
these programs, it has stopped 
awarding probationary commis- 
sions except for medical corps 
candidates who are already admit- 
ted to medical school. 

Marine Corps— This branch is 
also open to all classes. Many of 
the enlisted undergraduates have 
recently received letters warning 
them that 'they may be called to 
service after a certain specified 
time, although no definite inten- 
tions of calling men out has been 
made. Men enlisting in this ser- 
vice are no longer guaranteed that 
they will be given six months 
notice before being called for 

Anny Enlisted Reserve Corps — 
Although the senior and junior 
quotas are fast being filled, there 
are still a few positions open for 
applicants, and these requests will 
be favored in the order of their 
appearance. The sophomore 
quota of fifty-five is still fairly 
free, and it is being held in order 
that men who are in direct dan- 
ger of being drafted may take ad- 
vantage of its opportunity. The 
freshman quota of about seventy- 
five has not been touched as yet. 

Concerning status of men in the 
Enlisted Reserve, Secretary of 
War Stimson issued the following 
statement on September 8: ". . . . 
Further, the exigencies of the war 
have now become such that it Is 
now expected that by the end of

alopoulos went on to tell of the 
German invasion and the Greek 
defense against it. He explained 
why the fall of Greece came so 
swiftly in spite of the quality of 
their defensive works. He con- 
cluded with a description or the 
desolation of occupied Greece at 
the present and a plea, for greater 
effort from the United States. 

After his speech there was a 
period of questions, commenced by 
President Sills. The question that 
caused the most interest was one 
which gave Mr. Michalopoulos an 
opportunity to explain his opinion 
of the proper way to treat Ger- 
many after the war — to annihilate 
the leaders, punish the Gestapo 
appropriately, and to put the Ger- 
man people on disf ranch ised pro- 
bation for the next thirty years. 

Mr. Michalopoulos received his 
schooling in Greece, England, and 
France, and served in the Greek 
army at Salonica in the World 
War. In 1918-19 his career ad- 
vanced with the governorship of 
Lesbos and the North Aegean 
group of Islands. He was later for 
six years private secretary to the 
Prime Minister of Greece, was a 
member of the Greek delegation 

President Sills Speaks Sun Rises 
At Rotary Monday Noon 

President Kenneth C. M. Sills of 
Bowdoin College, honorary mem- 
ber of the Brunswick Rotary Club, 
addressed his fellow members on 
the topic of the international sit- 
uation, at their meeting at Hotel 
Eagle on Monday noon. 

Ho asked them to consider with 
him two grave dangers which he 
believes confront the United Na- 
tions and their peoples at the pres- 
ent moment. 

The first hazard, said President 
Sills, is the critical situation at 
Stalingrad. He said that popular 
public opinion is fast shaping up 
in favor of some decisive action, a 
unified military command of the 
United Nations, and a second 
front. Here is a chance for every 
single person, to join in this de- 
mand, but he warned that we must 
expect some defects, some blun- 
dering, and some confusion. 

Referring to the second danger, 
that of inflation, Mr. Sills urged 
that immediate and more extreme 
safeguards be set up against it or 
we shall have real misery as a re- 
sult. He suggests ceiling prices on 
practically everything including 
farm products; he advocates high- 
er taxes but expressed the view 
thitt present taxes on industry and 
business are adequate and suffi- 
cient; he said that he favors a 
federal sales tax and compulsory 
savings through war-savings bonds. 

In closing Mr. Sills said "Be- 
neath what is happening in Con- 
gress now is a very serious situa- 
tion. Our enemies say that demo- 
cracy does not, will not and cannot 
work in a crisis. They are looking 
on while Congress debates and 
hesitates and seemingly is in con- 
fusion. This is the time for the 
American people to say clearly 
that, so great are the stakes at is- 
sue. Congress* and the administra- 
tion must act as a unit in this 

vice age will all or for the most 
part be called to active duty, and 
those reaching that age during 
the subsequent terms will simi- 
larly be called." Commenting on 
this statement, Professor Kend- 
rick said that the Selective Ser- 
vice age may be considered twen- 
ty years and six months, thus as- 
suring many of at least one more 
semester in college. 

It is expected that in the near 
future a joint board representing 
the three services will visit the 
College and will be in a position 
to accept enlistments here on

*• r . 
HAZING, as we see it, in ninety- 
nine cases out of a hundred is ! 
stupid and useless if not actually I 
harmful. It takes up the time of | 
both freshmen and upperclass- j 
men, many of whom, especially the j 
latter, to judge by their marks 
COUH be pulling it to bettor ad- 
vantage. It is an imposition by i 
the upperclassmen of an arbitrary 
and tyrannical authority that in | 
a govermental sphere would be J 
condemned as dictatorship of the i 
sort we are now fighting against. ! 
The stunts required of freshmen ; 
are often of a nature that exceeds 
all bounds of good taste and some- j 
times exceeds ordinary standards 
of decency. While ardent hazers | 
may claim that it is all in a spirit ! 
of "good, clean fun," large num- > 
bers of freshmen every year seem 
|0 react differently. Poor, be- ! 
nighted souls! Occasionally, we 
admit, an extremely conceited per- 
son may come along who can be : 
advantageously deflated by some j 
properly applied mental hazing, ' 
but in general we can see no plausi- ' 
bio excuse for it. I 

THE ABOVE paragraph applies 
primarily to hazing of a mental 
nature. We have never yet met 
anyone who could advocate such 
predominanUy physical forms of 
hazing as paddling and "fire- 
drills" without becoming profane 
or obscene after about thirty sec- 
onds of argument. Despite ott re- 
peated statements to the con- 
trary we cannot see how vigorous 
application of an oak paddle to a 
freshman's stern "makes a man of 
him." We suppose it is a sur- 
vival of the ancient Spartan cus- 
tom of flogging contests desirable 
in a militaristic totalitarianism 
perhaps, but rather out of place 
in a modern democracy. The 
freshman is given no chance to re- 
taliate except for a few hours on 
Rising Day (when most of the 
sophomores carefully leave town). 
It docs not seem to be what we 
are accustomed to call fair play, 
and it shows a mental attitude 
similar to that of the gangs formed 
by boys in the fifth grade. Per- 
sons of college age are supposedly 

of mature judgement and percep- 
tion. Incidentally, actual te.^t 
cases takon to court have proved 
that physical hazing without the 
victim's consent is illegal and 
counts as assault. Anyone who 
will give his consent to violence 
done his person without oppor- 
tunity for retaliation is a fool.

Touch Football Schedule 

At a meeting last Monday of 
the White Key, which manages all 
the Inter-fraternity athletic com- 
petitions, it was decided that the 
fall touch-football league would 
commence its season next Mon- 
day and the first game is to be 
played at that time. The sched- 
ule, however, is still being work- 
ed out. 

The summer tennis series has 
still one game to go to comple- 
tion of its season. The game be- 
tween the T.D.'s and the Faculty 
is yet unplayed and it may be a 
little time before this match can 
be arranged. 

Loeman 9 40, Is 
Jayvees Coach 

Walter C. Loeman '40, former 
Bowdoin caplain and All-State 
guard, took over as Assistant 
Coach of Football in charge" of the 
Jayvees last Thursday. He will 
slay until the completion of the 
junior varsity's* schedule on No- 
vember 7, soon after which he 
plans to enter the !\avy. 

Coach George "Dinny" Shay 
summed up Bowdoin men's mem- 
ories of Walt Loeman by saying, 
"lie is probably the most out- 
standing guard we've ever had. 
lie is very familiar with Bowdoin 
men and traditions and its brand 
of football. He is ideally suited 
for the job." 

Walt is 25 years old and weighs 
185 pounds.? He began drilling his 
men last Monday. 

Opponents Of Bowdoin 
Saturday Successes 

Although victorious over. Tufts, 
the Polar Bears cannot afford to 
be too optimistic. True, Wesleyan 
bowed to the Coast Guard, 14-6. 
The Cardinals lacked scoring 
punch and numerous fumbles pre- 
vented consistent gains. * On the 
other hand, however, Williams, 
scoring almost at will, piled up 41 
points against Middlebury. It is 
also significant that the big 
Purple, second string men run 
nearly as well as the varsity with 
two freshmen, Higgins and Ruth 
running wild. As Amherst's 
game with Hobart was cancelled, 
they still must be considered an 
unknown quantity although they 
top have been reported to have a 
strong team with a big line. 

Colby, like Williams, was very 
active in rolling over a weak 
Lowell Textile, 58-0. Mackay, Ro- 
berts, and Caminetti were out- 
standing in toting the pigskin for 
the Mules. Although this contest 
was an unreliable test for Colby's 
actual strength, nevertheless it is 
evident that once again the Mules 
have a shifty, high-geared of- 

Harriers Begin Practice 
Hillman, Carey Standout 

Building about Carey and Hill- 
man as a nucleus, Cdach Magee 
has already for a week now been 
putting his harriers through their 
paces. With the graduation of 
Captain Curt Jones, the team has 
been left leaderless, but an elec- 
tion will be held this week to 
provide another captain. Besides 
the ever-dependable Hillman and 
Carey. Spear has been coming fast 
and looks like a sure bet for the 
number three spot. Also in there 
fighting for position are Webster, 
Zahnke, Senter, Smith, Jennings, 
Piper, and Early. 

As the freshmen have not re- 
ported yet, there are only ten men 
on the squad at present. More- 
over the first meet, the Colby 
meet to be held on Bowdoin's four- 
and-three-quarter mile course on 
October 12, promises to be a 
tough one. Reports from Water- 
ville tell of an outstanding Colby 
team. Led by Captain Quincy 
and ably supported by Robinson, 
the Mule sophomore who placed 
second in the New England fresh- 
man meet and Brown, an excel- 
lent miler, Colby should prove 
a tough nut to crack. "However," 
said Coach Magee, "In spite of 
these adverse conditions, I am 
well satisfied with the progress of 
the team. They are a hard-work- 
ing, high-spirited team, and a 
team that will give a good ac- 
count of itself this fall."

Most of the college may have taken all the war talk introductory 
to the present semester as a lot of blarney at one time, but (hat was no 
doubt before last Saturday's game against Tufts. Such phrases as 
"Freshmen being on the varsity v team" etc. really demonstrated their 
potentialities then as our football season was initiated. Not only were 
such sophomores as Billy Talcott, Fredi Dickson, Jeff Powers, Tommy 
Huleatt, Dick Barry, Hubbard, and Finnagan given their first crack at 
college ball but also Jim Pierce, and Bill Moody of the Freshman class. 
We won't go into the details of the game but just take time out long 
enough to say that new talent and a new coach seem to have produced 
a team that will go far this season.

One of the most vital effects oi the war on Bow-

the campus by advising students to "Take to the

himself veteranally to the Job and will hold down 
that position for the duration of the season,

As Tufts Threatens Twice 



Swimming Team Begins 
Fall Practice Monday 

On Monday, October 5. the 
Bowdoin swimmers once again 
start their fall workouts for the 
winter season. At this time the 
squad will be divided into two 
groups. Group A will consist of 
last year's letter men and the J. 
V.'s of 1942, while the new men 
will be placed in group B. 

Work this fall, at least until 
the pig-skin parade has passed, 
will consist mainly of pre-season 
training. The veterans will swim 
distances to build up endurance 
while the Frosh attempt to im- 
prove their form and participate 
in tryouts for the J. V. team. 
Swimming three days a week 
counts as a regular attendance in 
athletics but to provide addition- 
al enthusiasm Coach Miller spoke 
of two meets that were being 
planned for some date preceding 
Christmas. Without doubt one of 
these meets will be an interfra- 
ternity contest such as the one 
which was received so enthusias- 
tically last year. 

T.D.'s And Faculty Tied 
In Finals Of Tourney 

The interfraternity tennis tour- 
nament which was to have been 
finished during the summer session 
is now in its final stages. The 
T.D.'s and the Faculty are battling 
for the cup with one match apiece 
and one more to be played. 

Bill McLellan defeated Professor 
Quinby 6-4. 6-4 whereas Profes- 
sors Brown and Daggett, a flashy 
double team, defeated the T.D.'s 
combination of Bill Collins and Hal 
Curtis by the easy score of 6-1, 
6 r 2. The remaining match is that 
between John Abbott, captain and 
first man on this summer's var- 
sity squad, and Professor Kendrick, 
the first man on the Faculty team. 
This match should be played either 
Wednesday or Thursday of this 

Phi Beta Kappa 
Changes Rules 

Professor Stanley P. Chase, sec- 
retary of the Alpha of Maine 
Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa has 
wished to make public the change 
in time of elections to Phi Beta 
Kappa. These regulations were en- 
acted at the annual meeting on 
May 29, 1942 and will be in affect 
for the period of the war. 

First, under the. "three semes- 
ter" program, a limitation of num- 
bers is imposed roughly equivalent 
to the previous limitation of fifteen 
members from any one class. 

Secondly, an election and initia- 
tion of new members may be held 
at the end of each of the "three 
semesters" — i.e., in September, 
January, and May. 

Thirdly, at any one of these elec- 
tion periods, students who have 
completed at Bowdoin twenty-sev- 
en semester-units for college credit 
may be elected, regardless of the 
length of time they have been in 
residence at the College. Twenty- 
seven semester-units is the num- 
ber of credits previously required 
for election at the end of the Jun- 
ior year. 

At the latest meeting of the so- 
ciety, three new men were elect- 
ed: John F. Jaques, Donald C. 
Larrabee, and Laurence H. Stone, 
all of the class of 1943. At the initi- 
ation ceremony of these men and 
of the men who were elected last 
June, Alan L. Gammon, Robert S. 
Burton, John W. Hoopes, Jr., John 
B. Matthews, Jr., and Peter M. 
Rinaldo, also all of the class of 
1943. Professor Edward S. Kirk- 
land, secretary of the Alpha chap- 
ter, spoke on the subject "Acad- 
emic Freedom in a Time of War." 
Matthews made the response of 
the students. 

ZetesBeat A.D.'S 
For SoftballTitle 

Sprinting to a late, close finish, 
the Softball crew of Zeta Psi won 
the first summer interfraternity 
championship at Bowdoin college. 
The Zetes, in the playoffs, beat 
the D.U.'s on Monday, Sept. 7, and 
the next evening, drubbed the A. 

Going into the playoffs, the 
Zetes and D.U.'s were tied for sec- 
ond place, and wouldn't have had 
a prayer, except for the rule re- 
quiring a playoff among the three 
leading teams. Up to this time, 
the Zete's play had been slow and 
sprinkled with errors, and the 
games had been, many of them, 
wort by close margins. But at the 
last they came through, aided by 
superb pitching and heavier-than- 
usual batting. 

On Monday the Zeta Psi aggre- 
gation met the D.U.'s, and took 
them over in the seventh, 3-2. 
The game was close all the way, 
and* fine fielding support of pitch- 
er Lu Kimball seemed to hold the 
Zete sticks. However, Captain 
Whit Mansur's long fly brought 
home the winning run. Bob Shana- 
han and Jack Lane, the latter 
with his scooping catches and ter- 
rific throwing arm, starred for 
Delta Upsilon. 

Zeta Psi was more confident the 
next evening and led Alpha 
Delta Phi all the way. Dick 
Means pitched himself out of a 
couple of close spots, and was 
well supported. Will Small's pow- 
erful bat and the improved field- 
ing of Bob Cinq-Mars, with Paul 
Davidson's steady game, were 
outstanding for the A.D.'s. 

For the*Zetes, Dick Means was 
outstanding. His fast, controlled 
pitching gave his mates confi- 
dence. The late-season entry of 
Herb Babcock into the team and 
the fine work of Dick Johnstone 
at third also contributed to Zeta 
Psi's success, as did Captain Whit 
Mansur's fine game.

The President stated that the 
colleges could be well proud of 
the fact that, whereas only 
twelve per cent of the United 
States Army consists of college 
graduates, eighty per cent of those 
selected for officers training are 
from this group. He said that we 
should be proud of this fact and 
so dedicate ourselves to the cause 
Of our country in peril that we 
may reach a speedy victory and November 
a just peace.

person who seemed to find the 
tale at all humorous, the rest 
merely sneering, in an attempt 
(we later found out) to discomfit 
the neophyte. 

Other freshmen took his place 
soon, he having retired to a cor- 
ner to complete the mastication 
of his lettuce, and the evening got 
into full swing. Never before had 
we seen such an array of talent, 
as the youngsters were required 
t to perform all the acts known to 
vaudeville and burlesque, com- 
plete to a chorus singing some- 
thing about a lady named 
"Queenie." Occasionally one of 
them would be unsatisfactory, and 
the brothers would all reach un- 
derneath the table and magically

as Walt Daniels picked up 14 
yards on three plays and moved 
the ball down to the Tufts 43-yard 
stripe, from whence Pierce scamp- 
ered the remaining distance to the 
end zone. He started out on what 
appeared to be a wide sweep, 
quickly cut back through Tufts' 
left tackle, and swiftly moved 
down through the Tufts secondary, 
leaving a handful of would-be 
tacklers fallen behind him. Walt 
Donahue's placement split the up- 
rights, and Bowdoin led, 7-0, at the 
end of the first half. 

Highlights of the third quarter 
were Dolan's 24-yard run on a va- 
riation of the Statue of Liberty 
play when Tufts had backed the 
Polar Bears deep into their own 
territory, and Pierce's 15-yard gain 
on the opening play after the sec- 
ond half kickoff . There was plenty 
of action in the final quarter, and 
Bowdoin moved into scoring posi- 
tion early when Pierce completed a 
well-timed running pass to left end 
"Pete" Hess, gpod for 18 yards and 
a first down on the Tufts 24. Fred 
Dickson, playing in Bill Elliot's 
place at fullback, plowed down to 
the 9-yard line on two plays, but 
here the Jumbo line stiffened and 
threw both Daniels and Johnstone 
in their attempts to gain, ground. 
On fourth down, however, Pierce 
swept around his right end, and 
was finally hauled down on the 
one-yard line. Dickson gained two 
feet on the next play, and then 
Pierce crashed over for the second 
Big White tally. 

Tufts offensive threats came to- 
ward the end of the game, when 
Warren Price took a 4ong pass 
from George Foster that carried 
61 yards and was prevented from 
going all the way only by a lunging 
tackle by Fred Dickson. Adam 
Walsh rushed in his regulars, and 
Bowdoin took over four plays lat- 
er, after Tufts had failed to gain a 
single yard. Shortly after. Foster 
connected with Price and Mernick, 
moving the ball 32 yards to the 
Bowdoin 12-yard line, but again 
the Big White defense tightened 
and four consecutive Jumbo 
passes were ruled incomplete. 

The Polar Bears executed their 
plays with a finesse and spirit 
rarely seen in the opening game of 
the season, and several newcomers 
to the Bowdoin line-up turned in 
very creditable performances. Be- 
side Jim Pierce, right end Bill 
Moody was the other yearling in 
the starting Kne-up, and Bill's 
playing was no less important than 
Pierce's, although somewhat less 
spectacular. Sophomore Pat Gron- 
din completed the trio of newcom- 
ers to the starting line-up, and 
Pat's work reminded us consider- 
ably of Sonny Austin, not only in 
his solid line play but also in the 
way he wore his uniform. Ros9 ( 
Hubbard at guard and Fred Dick- 
son at fullback more than played 
up to expectation in this their first 
varsity game. 

Captain Jimmy Dolan's run-back 
of punts was always a threat to the 
Tufts defense, and the Jumbos had 
their hands full trying to keep him 
in check. Bill Beckler showed ex- 
cellent quarterbacking in his selec- 
tion of plays, and the starting line 
appeared considerabl> stronger 
than last year's forward wall. 
Adam Walsh seems to have found 
a combination in Donovan. Minich, 
Grondin, Hutchings, and Hunter 
that can more than hold its own on 
defense and easily open up holes 
for the swift moving Polar Bear

Freshmen Class 
Attends Annual 
B.C. A. Smoker 

Last Wednesday evening, Sep- 
tember 23. The Bowdoin Christian 
Association held its annual Fresh- 
man Smoker, for the class of 1946. 
Gerald W. Blakeley '43. President 
of the Association, presided, spoke 
on the purpose of the B.C.A. and 
introduced speakers representing 
various activities on campus. 

Professor Herbert R. Brown 
gave the principal address of the 
evening; James D. Dolan, Jr., pres- 
ident of the Student Council, spoke 
on freshman rules; Edward P. 
Simonds, president of the Masque 
and Gown, announced the dramatic 
society's smoker; and Robert L. 
Edwards, editor-in-chief of the 
Orient, spoke briefly on the activ- 
ity of the paper. Professor Fred- 
eric Tillotson gave a short talk on 
the music activities of the college, 
and then urged the freshmen to 
try out for the Glee Club and 
Choir, as well as the reorganized 
band. The Glee Club rendered two 
selections. "Brothers, Sing On," 
and "Bowdoin Beata." 

In his talk. Professor Brown 
mentioned that Bowdoin is fortu- 
nate in having such a fine Glee 
Club, since it sings not only wisely, 
but with Wellesley. He went on to 
urge the freshmen to attend to, 
"the serious business" of college, 
and emphasized the importance of 
"doing the job well," especially in 
these times, when an education 
means so much. He warned against 
"spreading oneself too thin" among) 
the extra-curricular activities and 
very strongly recommended stick- 
ing to one activity and doing that 
well, especially in view of the fact 
that time is so much curtailed 


Donovan D. Lancaster, Direc- 
tor of Student Aid, announced 
today that there are still Jobs 
open to undergraduates, many 
of them with people in the 
town, requiring special skills. 
Men desiring these Jobs are 
urged to see Mr. Lancaster at

Bowdoin Plans Annual 
Scholastic Debates 

Professor Athern P. Daggett has 
released this season's plans of the 
Bowdoin Inter-Scholastic League. 

Hie debates are to be held as us- 
ual this year on the second Satur- 
day in December. There will be 
two forms, and each school is to 
send one representative to each 
form. The topic for discussion is 
the conscription of men and wom- 
en for not only military duty but 
also for other wartime activities. 

Bangor. Portland, and Leavitt 
Institute have already expressed 
agreement with this plan. 

Only one member of last year's 
forms has entered this fall as 
Freshman. This is Robert Dono- 
van, who represented Portland last 
year. He received "the State of 
Maine Scholarship for the first

Tillotson Announces 
Glee Club Plans 

Bowdoin's Glee Club activities 
for the year will start on Thurs- 
day evening at 6.45 o'clock in Me- 
morial Hall, when the first rehears- 
al of the year will be held, Pro- 
fessor Frederic Tillotson announc- 
ed this week*. At the moment it is 
impossible to say how large a group 
there will be since the results of 
the try-outs, held Monday and 
Tuesday, have not yet been made 
known. ' 

Owing to transportational diffi- 
culties, no definite plans can at 
present be announced. Professor 
Tillotson said. However, two per- 
formances of the "Messiah" have 
been definitely scheduled for the 
early part of December. The first 
is to be held on Saturday, Decem- 
ber 5, at the college, and the second 
on Sunday, December 6, at the 
Portland City Hall. For the latteu 
performance it is hoped to enlist 
the services of the Portland Wom- 
en's Club, the Portland Men's 
Singing Society, and New Hamp- 
shire State College Glee Club, 
Bradford Junior College, and Col- 
by College. Since John Thomas 


Professor Morgan B. Cushing, 
Chairman of the Faculty Commit- 
tee on the Blanket Tax, announces 
that the committee will hold its 
annual hearings next week. Un- 
dergraduate managers of activi- 
ties dependent on the Blanket Tax 
should prepare their budgets for 
the current year in consultation 
with their faculty advisors. A 
schedule of appointments with 
managers will be posted on the 
bulletin board early next week. 


Fifteen more sons of Bowdoin 
men entering this fall have in- 
creased the total number of sons of 
alumni now in college to 30. Of 
this new group two are transfers.

Freshmen Win Honors 
In Competitive Exams 

As a result of the comprehen- 
sive English exams which was re- 
quired of all freshmen last Thurs- 
day, twenty-five freshmen have 
been granted the privilege of tak- 
ing an advanced course. They have 
been given their choice of a course 
in. Shakespeare, American litera- 
ture, the English novel, or ad' 
vanced composition, with most of 
the men taking Professor Herbert 
R. Brown's American "Literature. 

The exam was one of a most 
comprehensive nature. Vocabulary 
and interpretive ability in both 
poetry and prose were stressed. 

The following summer freshmen 
received honorable mention as a 
result of the examination although 
they were required to take Eng- 
lish 1-2 this summer: 

D. R. Hastings, G. L. Hilde- 
brand, B. R. Leavitt, R. F. Little- 
hale, K. Kingsbury, P. K. Niven, 
H. Pendexter, and P. S. Sweet. 

Frqm the entering freshmen: A. 
N. Berry, G. W. Bull, C. D. Cutler, 
W. E. Cormack, C. N. Cormack, 
C. N. Crain, R. W. Donovan, P. H. 
Eames, W. F. Fry, L. E. Harte, F. 
C. Hersey, W. A. Johnson, W. J. 
Johnson, F. D. Law, E. F. Law, E. 
F. McCue, W. S. McDonough, A. 
M. Robinson, T. M. Sawyer, S. B. 
Sylvester, A. A. Terrill, W. H. 
Toomy, R. M. True. 

The guest speaker at the first 
Sunday chapel was the Rev. Rich- 
ard Emrich, of the Episcopal Theo- 
logical Seminary, Cambridge, 
Mass. Reverend Emrich is one of 
the scholars of the Episcopal 

The theme of the address was 
work. There are, according to the 
speaker, two types of work— that 
which we do simply because it is 
noble to accomplish something 
worthwhile. And that which we do 
in order to help our fellow man. 
From both types we receive a deep 
satisfaction. The former type is the 
one which more directly applies to 
the students here at Bowdoin. 

Mr. Emrich emphasized the fact 
that many of us — of Americans as 
a whole — have "buckled down" for 
the first time. Many of us are the 
descendants of aristocrats. Al- 
though the same blood flows in our 
veins, we are mere shadows of our 
predecessors, preferring to rest on 
their merits, rather than to do a 
little honest work ourselves. But 
the war has brought a metamor- 
phosis. We now see that it is neces- 
sary that we "buckle down," both 
for our own good and that of our 

Committee Will Not 
Extend Quota Yet 

Professor Cecil T. Holmes of the 
Committee on Pledging, has an- 
nounced that there will be no ex- 
tension of the quota on freshman 
pledges, at least until some places 
in fraternity quotas that are now 
empty become filled. 

Professor Holmes said that the 
Committee has been repeatedly 
asked during the past few days if 
there would be any change in the 
quota. He explained that the com- 
mittee has to refuse such requests, 
since some fraternities have not 
yet filled their quotas, but that, 
when and if such quotas are filled, 
then pledging will be opened 

Professor Holmes emphasized 
that to open the quota now would 
be equivalent to abolishing the 
whole quota system, and that the 
Committee has no right to take 
this action. He mentioned that the 
Committee did not originate this 
law, but that it was appointed to 
take charge of the administration 
of the law after it was put into 

Critical days for the fraternities 
still exist, pointed out Professor 
Holmes, since large numbers of 
Seniors will be graduated in Jan- 
uary and June, and the houses will 
need their full quota to meet fi- 
nancial obligations. 

The Committee feels that by 
next fall the need for the protec- 
tion afforded by the quota system 
will be enormously greater than it 
is now, and that any action that 
would destroy the efficacy of that 
future protection would be most 
unwise, even if the Committee 
were authorized to take such ac- 

VARIETY .... . 

By Crawford B. Thayer 

Although Bowdoin will continue with class distinction 
for the present, we wager that such a plan will not work for 
long, especially with Seniors graduating in January and Jun- 
iors finishing in June. We even saw the height of irony Mon- 
day when a Summer freshman asked a Fall freshman for a 
match. C'est la guerre . . . 

With the rest of the college key- 
ed up to full wartime production 
we note with interest that the col- 
lege library complacently continues 
along its idle way still opening its 
doors at eight-thirty as it did in 
1941 B.W. (Before War) ... In- 
cidentally the new rule about 
Summer frosh playing football has 
proved to be a good idea it seems. 
The Big White's defense is better 
than its offense which might indi- 
cate something hopeful . . . Stop 
me if I'm wrong. 

Captain John Smith, who died in 
1631, wrote what proved that Ivy 
house parties did not originate at 
Bowdoin, but with the Indians. 
"Every spring," he wrote, "they 
make themselves sicke with drink- 
ing the juice of a root they call 
wighsacan, and water; whereof 
they powre so great a quantity, 
that it purgeth them in a very vio- 
lent manner; so that in 3 or 4 daies 
after, they scarce recover their 
former health" . . . Mr. Michal- 
opoulos, member of the Greek cab- 
inet in exile, carries a copy of Hom- 
er with him wherever he travels. 
"Naturally," Professor Means 
would say . . . 


.the Navy completed his extra ac- 
tivity for the training group yes- 
terday. Undergraduates in the 
dorms will surely miss his cheery 
good-morning call. He was the 
Navy bugler. Predestination, we 
call it . . . The repeat perform- 
ance of the Masque and Gown's 
greatest show (history proves it), 
"Watch on the Rhine" will be a 
treat for the visiting fathers on Oc- 
tober 16. Many local play-goers 
plan to take in the repeat of the 
anti-nazi play . . . 

It is rumored around town 
that the attendance in the Tallman 
course exceeds that of the Presi- 
dent's Comparative Literature 
course . . . We hear that the 
plates of Dante's Divine Comedy 
as translated by Bowdoin's Mr. 
Johnson have been turned in as 
metal for use against the axis pow- 
ers. A disheartening case of cul- 
ture bowing to self preservation. I 
can think of several auto grave 
yards which I would have pre- 
ferred to see go for scrap first . . . 
Now that this cider season is here 
again jugs may be seen hanging 
from various dorm windows. When 
tte^ground crew starts burning 
leaves the Fall season will actually 
be here . . . 


The Alumni office requests 
that undergraduates turn in the 
present addresses of all Bowdoin 
men known to be in the armed 
forces in order that this file be 
kept up to date. Copies of the 
Bowdoin Alumnus are being 
sent to all men in uniform as 
soon as their various stations 
are made known.

ment. Members of the Naval unit 
here and Alumni of the college 
will also be welcome. 

Tuesday and Wednesday, Octo- 
ber six and seven the President 
and Professor Kendrick will at- 
tend a meeting of the colleges of 
New England at Tufts. This is 
an annual meeting of the 14 
colleges of liberal arts in New 
England to discuss items of mut- 
ual interest. The colleges are: 
Bowdoin, Brown, Amherst, Clark, 
Connecticut. Boston University, 
Dartmouth, Harvard. Maine, Mid- 
dlebury University. Trinity. Tufts. 
Williams, and Yale. 

A total of about 580 students 
have enrolled this fall, a decrease 
of seven per cent from last year's 
registration for the first semester. 
This is the smallest percentage 
decrease of any college the Admin- 
istration has yet heard from. 

The College has been asked to 
assist as far as possible in pre- 
venting travel over the week ends, 
particularly by rail, and probably 
there. will be more students on the 
campus week ends than usual. 
Railroads are so crowded at this 
time that the government has re- 
quested that travel be cut down 
as much as possible.

NcNutt Tells College 

Students' Part In War 

The college student's part in 
winning the war has been clearly 
laid down by War Manpower Chief 
Paul V. McNutt. The path of serv- 
ice forks: All able-bodied males are 
bound for duty in the armed forces. 
All others, men and co-eds, must be 
trained to carry the bali on the 
Home Front. 

Mr. McNutt in a speech at Pur- 
due reecntly, said: 

"The colleges and universities 
are charged with increasing the 
number of technicians upon which 
both industry and the armed forces 
depend. The colleges and univer- 
sities, by insuring a continual sup- 
ply of technically trained men and 
women, can insure the continual 
increase of our strength for victory 
and for peace." 

In another statement. Secretary 
of War Stimson explained that the 
armed forces are already running 
short of manpower and new re- 
cruits must be called up. Student 
members of the enlisted reserve 
will not be summoned at some in- 
definite time in the future — they 
will be called up at the end of the 
present college terms as they 
reach the draft age of 20.

Cooperation Of House 
Presidents Requested 
By Student Council 

At the weekly meeting of the 
Student Council last Monday 
night, the governing body took 
the first steps in the new method 
of enforcing freshmen rules. In 
this respect it was also agreed 
that the houses were following the 
new dazing regulations very faith- 
fully, and the group felt that there 
should be no reason for complaint. 
Various appointments were made 
to special campus positions from 
members of the student body. 

After discussion of the question of 
freshmen rules, it was agreed that 
the first group of men thought 
guilty of ignoring the laws would 
be ask?d to appear before the 
Council tribunal at the next regu- 
lar meeting. In order that there 
may be no misunderstandings. 
President Dolan will ask all house 
leaders to make sure that their 
pledges are thoroughly acquainted 
with the rules, and the sophomore 
class will be asked to issue a Pro- 
clamation typical of those ordi- 
narily given out on Proc Night. 
The Council, also voted to follow 
the precendent established last 
year, and to discontinue the ob- 
servance of Rising Day. 

After discussing sentiments ex- 
pressed in the last issue of the 
ORIENT, it was decided that 
there could be no legitimate cause 
for complaint of the present haz- 
ing program, and that perhaps 
such an idea might have come 
from inadequate information. 
President Dolan asked for reports 
from the houses represented at 
the meeting, and all appealed that

Trials For Alexanders 
Will Be Held Monday 

Assistant Professor Albert R. 
Thayer has announced that the 
trials for the annual Alexander 
Prize Speaking Contest will be 
held at Hubbard Hall In the de- 
bating room at seven o'clock. 
.Monday evening, October 12. All 
members of the lower three 
classes are eligible. Professor* 
Thayer and Daggett will be glad 
to see any students who wish to 
dtacuas the trials. The selection 
is to be no more than Ave min- 
utes in length, need not be mem- 
orized, and need not be the se- 
lection intended for use In the 
final contest of November SO. 


According to Athern P. Daggett, 
Campus Post Warden, the fourth 
practice air raid blackout, Sep- 
tember 29, including Brunswick, 
Bath, and Portland, was almost 
100% effective. In the town 
areas and on the campus, individ- 
uals still violate the simple black- 
out rules by lighting matches, 
candles, and flashlights in open 
places and in dormitories which 
do not have every window black- 
ed out. 

As far as warden efficiency was 
concerned, all key men in charge 
and assistants were at their sta- 
tions by the time the second raid 
alarm sounded. It is hoped that 
in the near future it will be pos- 
sible to give the air raid warning 
personnel formal training in their 
respective duties, that they may 
be of real service in case of 
actual emergency. 

Dr. Yang Impressed By Bowdoin 
Fellowship, Climate, And Alumni * 

By Dick Hornberger 

Monday afternoon we wandered 
across the campus to the Cram 
house, the top floor of which is 
now occupied by Dr. and Mrs. 
Yang. Dr. Yang, as everyone 
knows, is the new lecturer in the 
Tallman course, and is at pres- 
ent providing some 125 Bowdoin 
students with "an interpretive 
analysis of China, past and pres- 
ent". This subject will constitute 
only one half of the year course. 
During the second semester. Dr. 
Yang will speak on the culture 
and heritage of China. 

Of course, the obvious question 
to ask Dr. Yang in an interview 
was 1iow he liked Bowdoin. This 
was a very obvious and trite 
query, but the answer we got was 
neither. Dr. Yang's reply was 
that he was very much impressed 
by the wonderful climate, the 
beautiful scenery, and above all 
the beautiful fellowship which 
prevails throughout the college. 

Dr. Yang also said, "I wish to 
congratulate the students of Bow- 
doin upon the wonderfuj oppor- 
tunity they have to study in such 
a fine environment. In these days 
there are few places in the world 

where young men are able to pur- 
sue their studies without inter- 
ruption. Few colleges have such 
a high academic standard and 
such a distinguished alumni as 

Our alumni appear to have 
made a particularly deep impres- 
sion upon Dr. Yang. I He was very 
much surprised a short time ago 
to learn that Longfellow had once 
graced a cell in Winthrop Hall. A 
few days ago Dr. Yang was walk- 
ing past the gymnasium and notic- 
ed the Bowdoin Polar Bear. He 
inquired about to determine the 
significance of the animal's pro- 
minent position, and was again 
surprised to learn that the discov- 
erer of the North Pole had gone to 

Dr. Yang, of course, is a native 
of China, but he is nevertheless 
no stranger to America, for he is 
currently making his eighth visit 
to this country. He has been in 
the United States on his present 
trip since March. 1941. 

Before becoming a lecturer at 
American colleges, Dr. Yang first 
attended the University of Wis- 
consin, and later George Washing-

By George Cnrigie 

PERHAPS IT seems too far 
ahead to begin talking about house- 
parties now, perhaps there won't 
be any. we don't know; but if 
there are, and it is our personal 
hope that we continue this insti- 
tution, we have a suggestion to 
make. We think it is a good sug- 
gestion, but we're not sure. It 
does seem a little radical, we'll ad- 
mit; but that shouldn't bother us 
if it seems to be for the better, 
and we think it is. 

s - r 

IT WAS rather a shock to us to 
learn that Christmas vacation was 
to be shortened to eleven days; 
but we took it in our stride, be- 
cause we're getting used to accel- 
eration, and we Can see the point. 
But when we learned that we 
were to be back here to start 
clasaes on December 31. that 
floored us. New Year's Eve! Per- 
haps the college authorities do not 
realise what that evening means 
to most of us. The Eve has been 
thoroughly celebrated in the past. 
and we feel that it will be hard 
to keep us from doing the same 
this year. 

s - r 

SO WHEN we found that we 
start classes that day and con- 
tinue on the next, we were flab- 

bergasted. That evening's cele- 
bration will be rather hard to con- 
trol, we're afraid, and we can 
promise that classes will be rather 
poor the next day, with most of 
us taking unprepareds. This we 
won't do in misguided retaliation, 
but because it is a tradition with 
most of us to celebrate New Year's 
Eve, a tradition hard to break. 
Therefore we can conclude (a) 
that classes for two days will be 
wasted, and (b) that there will 
be a thorough celebration in 
Brunswick, Portland, and sur- 
rounding country. 

IN VIEW of these facts, we feel 
that our plan has feasibility. Our 
plan is to skip Christmas house- 
parties entirely and hold a house- 
party on our coming back. The 
few days that we lose by having 
girls here then would be more 
than made up for by the fact that 
studying wouldn't be very well 
done anyway on those days, and 
we'll have the days of the regular 
houseparty for unadulterated 
work. We would have classes as 
usual, with double cuts, and it 
would be the same as at Christ- 
mas houseparties, when the same 
situation exists. Looking at it 
this way, it seems that we .would 
gain rather lose; or, more eon-

Extensive Program Is 
Planned For Thirteenth 
Annual Celebration 

A week from Saturday, Octo- 
ber 17, Bowdoin will hold its thir- 
teenth annual Fathers* Day cele- 
bration. President Sills has al- 
ready sent invitations to the fath- 
ers of members of the freshmen 
class. Last year there were 66 
fathers in attendance, and it is 
hoped that this year's group may 
be of the same size, despite the 
difficulties of travel. Following 
is a letter to the freshmen from 
Donovan D. Lancaster, explaining 
the program arranged for the 
Fathers' Day week end: 
To the members of the Freshman 

This week your fathers are re- 
ceiving invitations from President 
Sills to come to the College for 
our thirteenth annual Fathers' 
Day Program, October seven- 
teenth, the day of the Williams 

For the week end. on Friday 
will come the Junior Varsity- 
Freshman game with Hebron. 
Then on Friday evening will fol- 
low a performance of the play 
"The Watch on the Rhine", Col- 
lege play with Faculty-Student 
cast. Parents of freshmen are 
admitted free. 

On Saturday, there will be 
classes to visit and Chapel and the 
Williams - Bowdoin game to see. 
Beginning after Chapel there will 
be an informal faculty reception 
in the main lounge of the Union. 
Your 11:30 classes will be excused. 
Freshmen should bring their fath- 
ers to the reception. 

Beginning at 12:15 fathers will 
be the guests of the College at 
luncheon in the Union. We can- 
not ask freshmen to be luncheon 
guests, but you are welcome to 
have lunch with your, fathers at 
the Union. There is also a dining 
room with table service at the 
Union where mothers who come 
up for the week end can secure 
their meals. 

(Now I add a word about foot- 
ball tickets. You should get a 
ticket for your fathers for the 
game as all seats are reserved.

U.S. Authorizes 
Student Loans 

The U. S. Commissioner of Edu- 
cation has authorized the partici-- 
pation of Bowdoin College in the 
United States Government Stu- 
dent War Loans program for the 
fiscal year July 1, 1942 to June 30. 
1943. Loans not exceeding $500.00 
a year will be distributed to stu- 
dents in the fields of Physics and 
Chemistry. (Sophomores, Juniors, 
Seniors. ) 

Some of the conditions of these 
loans as specified by the United 
States 'Government are as follows: 

"Loans to students in technical 
and professional fields (national

Dr. Trust Speaks 
In Sunday Chapel 

At the second Sunday chapel 
of the fall semester, Bowdoin un- 
dergraduates were privileged to 
hear guest speaker. Dr. Harry 
Trust, President of the Bangor 
Theological Seminary, Ban gor, 
Maine. The Reverend Dr. Trust Is 
a graduate of ' Bowdoin College, 
Class of 1916, and, aside from 
being one of the few holders of 
the degree of Doctor of Divinity 
conferred by the college, is also 
a leader in the Congregational 

The theme of his address was 
Senseless Ambitions. He discus- 
sed the manner in which ambition 
has long been considered a vice, 
but went on to point out that 
such eminent thinkers as Ben Jon- 
son and Quintilian have even 
spoken of ambition as the par- 
ent of virtue. He then differen- 
tiated between healthy and sense- 
less ambition by quoting from 
Conrad's A Personal Record a* 
follows: "All ambitions are law- 
ful except those which climb up- 
ward on the miseries or creduli- 
ties of mankind." 

Following this vein of thought 
the late Neville Chamberlain was 
able to speak of Hitler's ambi- 
tions as senseless ambitions. 

Then, Dr. Trust showed that we, 

too, have our share of senseless 

ambitions. He cited the leaders 

of our labor unions as examples 

of men entirely directed by such 

ambitions. Through their creation 

of internal strife, the whole labor 

movement as well as the whole 

country at large has been losing 

its battle. The individuals who 

jean redirect matters in the future 

'must use religion as a bulwark 

1 against such expression of greed 

land personal glory. Religion and 

I "the desire to make one's life 

count in service for others" are 

I influences which drive men to the 

i highest realms of science, art, or 

life itself. It must be with this 

iin mind that we enter into the 

1 service of our country in this war, 

Ino matter whether we are given 

] the privilege of actual battle or 

service in civil life. 

Johnstone To Dolan Passes 
Provide Margin Of Victory 

. „ , , 
By Jim Early and Hal Curtis 

Continuing along their winning way, Coach Adam 
Wash's Big White eleven was stalemated for three periods 
last Saturday by a big Wesleyan team, but they broke into a 
scoring frenzy in the last period with two touchdowns on a 
Johnstone to Dolan pass combination and another one on an 
intercepted pass by George Altman. 

The first period was one of much 
excitement with fumbles turning 
the tide of the battle. Bowdoin 
threatened once from the Wesleyan 
nine-yard line. The second period 
was about the same, with both 
teams recovering fumbles and 
threatening to score from the ten. 
The third quarter was even-up un- 
til the closing minutes when the 
Polar Bears succeeded in pushing

Kirkland Speaks 
On Academic Life 

At the semi-annual meeting of 
Phi Beta Kappa, Professor Ed- 
ward C. Kirkland spoke on the 
subject of Academic Freedom in 
Wartime. He cited that the mem- 
bers of the academic profession 
have been, in the past and at pres- 
ent, one of the most belligerent of 
the groups composed of men en» 
gaged in non-combatant occupa- 
tions. They have failed to realize 
how vital could be their contribu- 
tion to the war effort. The speak- 
er showed what a vital effect the 
ideas and opinions of American 
college professors had upon the 
nation, and that many institutions 
saw fit to dismiss some of their 
professors, whose presence they 
deemed detrimental to the war ef- 

Citing the words of President 
Lowell of Harvard, he said that 
war brings to the front in aca- 
demic life many questions which 
are new, or present themselves to 
many people in a new light. Pro- 
fessor Kirkland then went on to 
point out various examples of 
academians who had been dismis- 
sed because of opinions that they 
had voiced, and how many of 
them were unjustly persecuted un- 
der the ambiguous phraseology of 
the Sedition Act of 1918. 

Professor Kirkland stated that 
the professor's reputation as a 
citizen, his standing as a scholar, 
and his very means of livelihood 
were often placed at the mercy of 
men who. were over-zealous or ex- 
cited. Quoting President Lowell, 
he said, "If a university or college

just in the end zone. Walt Dona- 
hue's try for point was not good. 
Altman Scores 

A few plays later with Bowdoin 
this time on the Wesleyan thirty- 
five, the same play worked again in 
the same spot. Then, after Wesley- 
an got the ball, they threw a pass 
from deep within their own terri- 
tory which "Dee" Minich deflected 
and which Co-Capt, George Altman 
gathered in and took over the goal 
line from the Wesleyan eighteen. 
On both of these last two scores 
Walt Donahue's try for the extra 
point was blocked. 
White Washings 

The game was plenty thrilling 
with quite a number of fumbles and 
interceptions. It seemed, during the 
first period, that both teams were 
going out of their way to be nice 
to each other with fumbles near 
their own goal lines. 

Once again our ends looked good 
defensively with Altman scoring, 
and after Simonton had broken 
through and blocked a Wesleyan 
punt. Freshman Bill Moody picked 
it up and ran to the ten, or about

Band Has New Director, 
Lieut Larsen Of Navy 

Last Tuesday night, the Bow- 
doin Band met for its first re- 
hearsal of the year under a new 
director," Lieutenant Larsen of 
Bowdoin Navy School, who is a 
former professor of the University 
of Maine and coach of the Maine 
Band. Lieutenant Larsen. with 
his long experience as a leader, 
should add a lot to the organi- 

Although the emphasis is now 
upon marches and football songs, 
Lieutenant Larsen has ordered a 
new group of overtures in prepar- 
ation for a concert this winter. 

A complete stock of music for 
the football season has been is- 
sued to the band, and there will 
be a marching drill every Friday. 

There are several additions to 
the band this year: a glockenspiel 
to be played by David Luscombe 
'43, and two new drum majors, 
Douglas Fenwood '44 and George 
S. Hebb. Jr. '44. Professor Til- 
lotson has appointed Clifford 
Little '46 as a drill instructor. 
The Band will make its first ap- 
pearance of this year at the Am-

Beam, Reviewing Quill, Approves 
Of Bourjailly 9 s Editorial Policy 

By Assistant Professor Philip C. 

One of the most interesting 
items in the Quill which came out 
of Bowdoin's first summer ses- 
sion is the editorial by Vance 
Bourjailly, because in it he states 
a clear-cut editorial policy. Mr. 
Bourjailly says that the aim of 
the Quill, though still literary in 
the best sense, should be to offer 
a "readable" and enjoyable cam- 
pus magazine. His further re- 
marks show that he has a clear 
idea of how it should be done, and 
the current issue is an example 
of this policy in practice. It is, 
to my mind, the best edited issue 
of the Quill to appear in some 
time. This is to the good, be- 
cause in the past one sometimes 
got the impression, however much 
one sympathized with the editors, 
that they were too much at the 
mercy of limited contributions and 
had to print all in order to fill the 

Bourjailly's down-to-earth atti- 
tude seems to me the answer to a 
long-standing lack. It. can be 
paraphrased by citing the advice 
of Fulton Ousler, now editor of 
Liberty and one of the most suc- 
cessful editors in the publishing 
business, when he addressed a cer- 
tain literary club. He regarded 
his editorship, he said, as a busi- 
ness, one of the hardest businesses, 
incidentally — that of pleasing and 
entertaining a. great cross sec- 
tion of the public. He said that 
the keen edge of practical com- 
petition has produced some of the 
most intelligent writing in the 
country in magazines like Har- 

per's and that some of the firms 
which sponsored "literature" on a 
subsidized budget really produced 
some of the most self-consciously 
arty matter to reach print. Like- 
wise, the best plays have been pro- 
duced, from Shapespeare's day 
on, by people who were simply in 
the "show business" rather than 
the "theatre." Talking specifical- 
ly, he said that his own magazine 
tried to present a balanced diet, 
rather comparable, in 'fact, to a 
meal comprised of hors d'oeuvres, 
a solid meat course, and a desert, 
of fluffier elements if you like. 

It is good to see the board of 
the Quill unwittingly follow Ous- 
ler's advice. The magazine they 
have turned out is well-balanced 
and readable. I shan't pretend 
that I liked all of it, but I found 
that the majority of the items 
held my attention. For my own 
amusement I graded each piece. 
Eight of the thirteen items seem- 
ed to me excellent; only three 
seemed to lack something. That 
is a reasonable achievement for 
any publication. 

There is a praiseworthy variety 
in the make-up of the issue, with 
no small credit due the editors 
themselves. The most effective 
homorous touch is contributed by 
Mr. Bourjailly and is entitled "The 
Ten Best Pictures of 1943." Em- 
ploying some good-natured satire, 
he points out more clearly than 
one ordinarily realizes, just how 
stereotyped the movies have be-

Managing Editor *of this Issue, lunes B. Hlgglns 
Vol. LXXII Wednesday, Oct. 7, 1942 No. 11 


It has been pointed out often in the 
past critical montrjs that old college tra- 
ditions and customs must necessarily be 
altered to meet the many new problems. 
Curriculum adjustments, new course 
schedules, and revised athletic require- 
ments are only a few of the changes made 
by the College. }t is inevitable that the 
fraternities will be forced to adopt new 
methods in the near future. 

We sincerely believe that the frater- 
nity system here at Bowdoin is indispen- 
sable to the best interests of the func- 
tioning of the College. The houses were 
able to survive during the first war. If 
this present struggle continues for any 
length of time, however, it is conceive- 
abie that all of the fraternities might find 
it necessary to close, and once shut, 
might face insurmountable difficulties 
when the time came to operate as usual 
again. We are faced with a critical prob- 

We will do well to examine the situa- 
tion carefully and to take the necessary 
precautions before it is too late. At the 
present, all houses are presumably run- 
ning as usual and have not been affected 
to any great degree by the war. But now 
that we understand the problem, let's 
see what can be done. 

First, let's consider some of the ques- 
tions at issue which we will face very 
shortly or are even confronting today. 
Certainly one of the most obvious diffi- 
culties to come up will be a decrease in 
the enrollment of the College. This is in- 
evitable due to the mid-year graduation, 
and at the same time, we may expect that 
in the future draft boards will be more 
strict and also the eighteen and nineteen 
year old men may be called. Naturally 
the College must watch its own interests, 
and in all probability, men will be drafted 
into the dormitories from the houses. 

Fraternities may expect to suffer the 
loss of many of the social privileges and 
customs of the past. Not only will the 
necessary funds be lacking, but the gen- 
eral public will frown on any pretentious 
social display. Efforts previously spent in 
these directions may well be turned to 
more practical programs. *} 

Then of course, the previous standard 
of living found in the fraternities will 
need to be reduced. Already chefs are 
feeling the pinch of rising prices and of 
the various ration programs. A great 
many foods are unobtainable. Coal bins 
and oil tanks may possibly be empty later 
this winter. 

In short, we will find it necessary to 
cope with many of these problems in the 
very near future. Undoubtedly new situ- 
ations will arise to bring unforeseen com- 
plications, and the fraternities must be 
in a position to meet such emergencies. 
Let's see what we can do now to consoli- 
date our position. 

Probably the most obvious step to be 
taken is the preparation of carefully 
worked out budgets. In' some cases 

where reserves are already building up, 
it may seem unnecessary to cut ex- 
penses, but we must remember that every 
bit saved now will be welcomed m the 
not too far distant future. Every bit of 
inconvenience suffered now will be doub- 
ly appreciated when the going becomes 
reaHy tough. It will be well to investi- 
gate the possibility of combines — for 
both dining rooms and sleeping quarters 
— since such steps will undoubtedly have 
to be taken, and the more complete the 
plans are now, the easier it will be to 
fall in line when the time comes. 

Careful attention to the planning of 
social functions of the future will be well 
worth while if not even absolutely im- 
perative. To cut down all fraternity ex- 
penses should be a common goal, and cer- 
tainly a great deal could be saved in this 
respect. As has been pointed out before, 
fraternity good will is an important as- 
set, and all that we can do to gain public 
favor will be greatly to our advantage. 

Our course can be strengthened, also, 
by accepting the usual war privations 
without complaint. As a matter of fact, 
we should be willing to take more than 
our share of cut in food stuffs and of 
fuel. We can certainly absorb the shock 
of these deficiencies more readily than 
youngsters or old people. If we are to be 
the leaders of the post war world, let's 
start showing a little initiative and lead- 
ership now. 

The fraternities should be ready and 
willing to accept any suggestions that the , 
College may offer for organization in the 
future. The administration is well aware 
of current problems and has an idea of 
what we should expect to face soon. This 
would be a timely opportunity for the 
inauguration of some sort of system of 
a general fraternity financial adviser. It 
would seem that this strengthening 
would be well worth the while for the 
College as well as the houses. 

The fraternities are faced with a chal- 
lenge — the question of their very con- 
tinuance. We feel that every effort 
should be made to bolster interf raternity 
and college-fraternity ties immediately, 
and that definite plans for future policies 
and activities be drawn up as soon as pos- 
sible. We have something here worth 
holding on to — let's not let it slip away. 


"The challenge of the new day for 
American colleges is very great. All our 
energies at the present must be devoted 
to winning the war. Yet winning the war 
will be futile if we do not throughout the 
period of its winning keep our people 
prepared to make a lasting and worthy 
peace. This time the peace must be global 
the same as the war has become global. 
Around the peace table the voice of the 
United States will have great weight. It 
is of tremendous importance that that 
voice shall represent the aspirations of a 
people determined that mankind every- 
where shall go forward to its destiny. 
The soul of that destiny is maximum 
freedom of the human spirit."

to the Inauguration of Dr. 
Everett Case as Ninth Presi- 
dent of Colgate University 


School spirit at Bowdoin sank to a 
new low (it hardly seems possible) last 
Thursday evening when the football 
team left for Wesley an. A very small 
group of supporters, most of whom were 
from one fraternity incidently, were at 
the train to wish good luck to the team 
as they left for the only game of the sea- 
son to be played without the support of 
undergraduates in the stands. 

All of the blame can't be put on the 
cheer leaders. Certainly there should be 
enough interest in this major activity to 
warrant spontaneous enthusiasm. Or are 
Bowdoin students capable of becoming 
enthusiastic? We have yet to be shown.

To the Editor of the Orient: 

There is, expressed in the 
columns of the nation's journals 
and periodicals, a growing belief 
in the minds of the people of this 
country, that the colleges and uni- 
versities of American should con- 
tinue in the militarization of their 
curricular and extra-curricular 
activities. Apparently the pub- 
lic believes that "this is no time 
for the broader courses". This 
shows a dangerous trend in pub- 
lic opinion; -a definite step in the 
direction of Fascism. 

Those who so l>el ieve, and at- 
tempt to proselytize in such be- 
liefs, have a vision which is limit- 
ed in scope to the. length of their 
own noses. They are attempting 
to sound, throughout the land, a 
torsin of doom for the American 
liberal arts institution. 

The future of the world, when 
the war has been won, lies in the 
ability of those who have acquired 
a cultural background. Another

require centuries of culture and 
liberal education to overcome. We 
have already seen the barbaric 
results in a nation who turned 
one of the finest cultural systems 
I of educations into a factory for 
the mass production of soldiers.

liberal arts in order to gain final 
victory would rob Peter to pay 

Such dangerous ideas have al- 
ready invaded the campus; a 
faculty member has publicly ex- 
pressed his belief that Bowdoin 

In answer to questions concern- 
ing the possibilities of men in the 
Marine Corps Jleserve leaving col- 
lege- before graduation. Professor 
Kendrick wished to say that these 
men must remain to get their de- 
gree if they are to be eligible for 
commissions. Unless specifically 
called by the Marine Corps, enlist- 
ed men are expected to maintain 
normal advancement in college. In 
this respect, Professor Kendrick' 01 
pointed out that he is obliged to 
submit reports to the various serv- 
ices of men of deficient standing at 
the end of each marking j»ei iud. 

Men proposing to enlist in the 
Army Reserve in Portland are ad- 
vised that they must present them- 
selves on any day except Saturday 
or Sunday at 8.00 in the morning. 
Candidates for the Army Air 
Corps Reserve need only prepare a 
single copy of their application 
form in the future. Applications for 
ground crew in this field ai-e ad- 
vised that many branches are now

Many freshmen and sophomores 
have been collecting their papers

Kendrick advises those men to en-

expense since there is no quota for 
these enlistments. 

should entirely dispense with all 
departments but those directly 
related to the prosecution of the 
war. Surely, if such ideas exist 
among members of the faculty, 
what can be expected of the stu- 
dent body? 

The college men (and women) 
of today are the leaders of tomor- 
row. If the colleges sacrifice, for 
immediate purposes, the "broad- 
courses, ( presumably the 
social studies of history, socio- 
logy, philosophy, and . psychology 
are included in this category) will 
today's college men, be capable 
leaders tomorrow? 

It will be most unfortunate if a 
single liberal arts course is sacri- 
ficed on this campus to the fur- 
ther regimentation of our curri- 
culum. Bowdoin is recognized as 
one of the leading liberal arts in- 
stitutions in the country; it must 
not give up its position for tem- 
porary trends. The world of to- 
morrow depends on humanitarian 
education, and American colleges 
must lead the way.

Students in Eastern and Mid-|

has cut the supply by water to al- 
most nothing. Overland facilities

the issue: namely, the section giv- 
ing some personal information 
about the contributers and the

Richardson, Jr. The book review 
section is adequately handled by 

The three poems published are 
all worthwhile. My personal fa- 
vorite is Donald N. Koughan's 
"On a Rose," though "Echo" by 
Allan Keniston is skilfully hand- 
led in both content and form; it 
just happens to be a bit too poe-, 
etic for my tastes these grim days. 
"Conversation," by John Ingra- 
ham, Jr., is mature in content but 
slightly awkward in form. John 
Jaques' "Rhapsody of Life" suf- 
fers, on the other hand, from an 
opposite fault; it is very well writ- 
ten, but the idea is puzzling and 
slightly unconvincing. 

Apropos the serious prose ef- 
forts submitted, I should like to 
offer an opinion by Somerset 
Maugham. He holds that a good 
short story should have a begin- 
ning, a middle, and an ending 
(obvious desiderata, but often 
ignored) and that a story will re- 
main in the reader's mind as good 
or bad in proportion to the ef- 
fectiveness of the ending— which 
is the last thing he reads. In 
short, a story which builds up 
well to a weak ending will fall 
doubly flat and leave the reader 
feeling frustrated. Also, Mr . 
Maugham, though he writes of 
exotic lands, has come in his wise 
old age to avoid trick techniques 
and colloquial dialects, because 
both forms monopolize attention 
1o the prejudice of the content.

Amherst Powerful Despite 
Loss Of Mulroy And Blood 

By Paul Davidson 

Victorious over Tufts and Wesleyan, the Walshmen 
turn to a mightier foe this week as they collide with another 
good Amherst team here on Whittier field. The Jeffs got off 
to a fast start last Saturday as they rolled over Springfield, 
27-19, in a game featuring offensive power. With lightening 
swiftness they struck at the beginning of the rirst, third, and 
fourth quarters, and- it was not until the last period that the 

Gymnasts were able to score consistently, via the air route.

night to work out the season's

last Monday, but since the sched- 
ule had not yet been distributed 
none were played on that day. Ar- 
rangements have been made for a

Capable Bowdoln Replacements 

Bowdoin with two well-earned 
victories to its credit should make 
things very interesting for the 
Jeffs. In contrast with the under- 
manned squad of '41, this year 
Walsh will find himself with wor- 
thy first, second, and in some posi- 
tions, even third stringers. These 
replacements are the direct results 
of hard work on the part of 
Coaches Walsh and Shay, who have 
brought along such freshmen as 
Pierce, Sweet, Gilmore, and 
Moody. Sophomores were also giv- 
en much attention, as Pat Grondin 
and Dick Berry starred at center, 
while Fred Dickson pushed Bill El- 
liot for the fullback post. At the 
ends Waller Finnagan, Jeff Power, 
and Walter Morgan have all show- 
ed well, as have Tom Huleatt, Mel 
Weiner, and Bill Talcott in the 
backfield, while Bud Vath and Ross 
Hubbard have been battling for the 
guard positions. 

Besides this unaccustomed re- 
serve material, however, the Polar 
Bears have another valuable asset, 
their aggressive spirit. This they 
have already exhibited in their last 
two games, and Saturday should 
see this spirit reach its peak. The 

The games scheduled to be play- 
ed the first two weeks. October 
5th to 15th must be made up by 
the 28th. Postponed games plan- 
ned for between October 19th and 
28th must be played before the 
start of the play-offs, which will 
occur between the second of No- 
vember and the fifth. Arrange- 
ments for postponements must be 
made with Rocky Ingalls at the 
Psi U. House by one o'clock on the 
day of the game or forfeiture of 
the game will result. Game scores 
should also be reported immedi- 
ately to Ingalls at the Psi U. 

The fraternities are divided in- 
to two leagues and the winners of 
each league will play off in No- 

Jeffs remain the last member of the 
Little Three undefeated by a Walsh 
team, and last year's defeat at 
their hands was the worst absorbed 
by the Big* White in years. 
High Scoring Game? 

If past results are any criteria, 
this clash should be a high scoring 

contest, as both teams have fast 
shifty backs. It is interesting to 
note, however, that Springfield 
•completed 9 out of 15 passes to 
score 19 points against Amherst, 
while Bowdoin also registered two j 
of its winning markers against the ! 
Cardinals on aerials. If the Bearj 
should prevail over the Jeffmen in ; 
the coming tussle, it may well be ; 
that the stratosphere will be the ! 
road to success. 

The Bowdoin Varsity Cross 
Country team will open its season 
on Monday, October 12, by play- 
ing host to Colby. The race will 
be run over a 4% -mile course, 
starting and finishing at the gym. 

Colby will send down frorrf Wa- 
terville the strongest team they 
have produced in a long time. 
Three notable veterans of their 
team are Captain Quincy, Brown, 
and Grahame; another good man 
is Robinson, a sophomore. 

The Bowdoin team that will 
face Colby is composed of Hill- 
man, Carey, Spear, Senter, Jen- 
nings, Smith, Webster, Zahnke, 
and Lewis. The team has lost its 
captain, Curt Jones, by his gradu- 
ation during the summer, and 
Dick Benjamin is working this 

Despite the definite threat 
which the powerful Colby squad 
offers, Coach Jack Magee an- 
nounced that he is highly pleas- 
ed with the fine spirit that his 
harriers have shown in practice, 
and that he is confident that the 
hardworking Polar Bears will 
give a good account of themselves 
in the meet. » 

After Monday, the squad will 
be augmented by several fresh- 
men who are expected to report. 

The next meet will be on the 
following Friday, October 16, at

By Ted Bubier 

The Big White football team won its second start of the 1942 season 
defeating a stubborn Wesleyan club last Saturday by a i8-0 score. 
Wesleyan, using a 5-4-2 defense, smothered the Polar Bear running 
attack Which functioned so smoothly last week against Tufts. Not until 
the fourth quarter did Bowdoin solve the Wesleyan defense by shooting 
two Johnstone-Ddlan passes down the middle, both of which were good 
for touchdowns. George Altman continued to be a ball hawk by inter- 
cepting a pass and speeding 16 yards, making the score 18-0. 

Bowdoin has two stiff tests in the coming games with Amherst and 
Williams. The Lord Jeffs have no climax runner like the Bobby Blood 
of years past, but they will doubtlessly be more competent than Tufts or 
Wesleyan. Williams looms up as one of the most powerful small New 
England teams, and its victory over the Princeton. Tiger gives notice 
that it will be Bowdoin's toughest opponent this fall. 

Bowdoin has now a better record than any of the other Maine 
teams. Colby .after an impressive high-scoring victory over Lowell In- 
stitute, lost to Norwich. Bates, after losing its first game, showed power 
in winning over Trinity, and Maine, as expected, lost to Columbia. How- 
ever, Maine, Colby, and Bates all have enough power to make the State 
Series the usual wide open battle.

The cross-country team opens Its season on Oc-

team, led by Al Hillman and Joe Carey have been 
conditioning since early in August. Besides Hlllman 
and Carey other members include Spear, Webster, • 

Smith, Zahnke, Early, and Lewis. Colby has a soph- 
# onion* runner, Robinson, who placed second last year 
in the New England Freshman cross-country run.

The Cards won their fourth straight World Series game, 4-2, Mon- 
day, winning the series, and proving that their youth and speed were 
too much for the vaunted Yankee batting power. Every one of the last 
four games was featured by the lightning speed of the Cards both on 
the base paths and in the field. When they were on base, the hustling 
Red Birds constantly worried the Yankee pitchers, contributing much 
to their downfall. It is interesting to note that in the five games not 
one Cardinal regular batted over .300, and only two of them batted over 
.250. The Yankees, however, had six men hitting well over .300. If the 
last two games had been played in St. Louis the story might have been 
different, as the New York hitting would have been considerably more 
effective. Some of the drives hit in the Yankee Stadium would have 
easily cleared the short outfield barrier in St. Louis, where they would 
have been out of reach of the miraculously fielding Cardinal outfield.

Polar Cubs Test Power 
Against Bridgton Eleven 

Friday, October 9, is the date 
scheduled for the first Jayvee foot- 
ball game. Coach Walter Loe- 
man's men will go against Bridg- 
ton Academy here on their home 
field. Because of the change in 
rules for eligibility, the former 
junior varsity and freshman teams 
are now merged into one team, 
composed of upperclassmen, sum- 
mer freshmen, and fall freshmen. 

As yet, it is too early in the 
season to tell either the strength 
of the Polar Cubs or who their 
outstanding players will be. The 
Bowdoin team has had little more 
than one week of practice, while 
the Bridgton eleven already has 
playing time behind them. 

However, the Bowdoin Jayvees 
have the advantage of having for 
their coach, Walter Loeman '40, 
captain of the '39 Bowdoin var- 
sity. Coach Loeman is considered 
by many as having been one of the 
best guards that Bowdoin has 
boasted in many a year, and there 
is no doubt that the Jayvee line 
will be well-drilled and hard- 
charging. In the backfield there 
is a large supply of halfbacks, part 
of whom will no doubt be shifted 
to other positions.

With impressive victories over 
Tufts and Wesleyan neatly stored 
away, the Big White gridders must 
now concentrate their attentions on 
sending the Lord Jeffs of Amherst 
down to a similar defeat. 

Amherst nipped Springfield Sat- 
urday, 27-19. Striking like light- 
ning, the Jeff machine pushed into 
pay dirt twice in five minutes of 
the initial stanza. Fullback Carey 
drove to the Gymnasts' ten, then 
tallied on the seventh play after 
the opening kick-off. 

Two plays later, Amherst's Koe- 
bel streaked down the left sideline, 
cut back toward the center and 
gave the Purple a 12-0 lead. Sopho- 
more Mills' placement split the up- 

Agnew and Koebel scored for 
Amherst later, Mills making good 
on two more conversions. 

It should be noted that had not 
Amherst surprised in the dawning 
moments, the score would have 
been much altered. Springfield 
completed nine out of fifteen fourth 
quarter passes and boomed into the 
end zone twice in the final six min-

With 5-4-2 Defense

thirty yards before he was over- 
taken from behind, a common fail- 
ing among the Big White flankmen. 

Bill Beckler punted beautifully 
into the corners to keep Wesleyan 
on their heels throughout most of 
the game. The Bowdoin pass de- 
fense still has a lot lacking, but the 
Wesleyan Cardinals could go prac- 
tically nowhere through the line. 
J5o far, nobody has threatened the 
Bowdoin goal through the line. 

In the line, while nobody stood 
out, Donovan and Altman looked 
good, while for Wesleyan, Benson, 
a freshman tackle, and Bridges and 
Eaton, backs, looked powerful. 
Wesleyan had deadly openfield 
tackling which kept our -scat- 
backs, Dolan, Pierce, Donahue, and 
Daniels bottled up. 

Wesleyan used a five-four-two 
defense, a lot of the time. Adam 
Walsh realized this, and the morn- 
ing before the game changed Dol- 
an's path on a pass play so that he 
would catch the pass in the center, 
which was open. And it worked for 
two touchdowns. »

Purple emerged victorious from a 
game with the Tigers. 

Statistically, it was all Princeton 
as the Tigers chalked up 14 first 
downs to five for the Massachu- 
setts eleven. 

Princeton led 7-6 at the half but 
the Ephmen were not to be denied 
in the third quarter, and Gunnar 
Hayes ran back a Tiger punt 59

Princeton slashed viciously at the

part of the Ephmen.

College Postpones James 
Bowdoin Day Exercises 


According to Professor Stanley 
P. Chase, the James Bowdoin Day 
exercises will be combined this 
year with the mid-year commence- 
ment exercises. It is felt that dur- 
ing the present emergency two 
days is a needless waste of time, 
so that the James Bowdoin Day, 
usually held in October, will be 
held sometime during the first 
week of the second semester. It is 
to be emphasized, however, that 
there is to be no thought of this be- 
ing more than a temporary war- 
time measure, and the two cere- 
monies will be held on separate 
days after the war. 

As far as the plans have been 
formulated, it is known only that 
there will be a well known person 
to speak to the combined group of 
seventy graduates and the James 
Bowdoin scholars.

tains, will never be a fully satis- 
fying substitute for an insufficient 
story. It is literature in the slight- 
ly arty sense, and belongs in the 
19th century with "art for art's 
sake." This critical good sense 
I pass on because disdain of it has 
plagued the Quill in the past. 

In the present issue Vance 
Bourjailly's "She Walks in Beau- 
ty" is less satisfactory than it 
might be. It reminds one of a 
moving story which appeared 
many years ago to tell of the 
courageous battle put up by a 
spinster school teacher to save her 
daughter (a relationship unknown 
even to the girl) from the mean- 
ness of a small town school board, 
but it lacks the power to make 
one take sides emotionally. The 
reason, I believe, is that the pos- 
sibilities of the plot were not 
analyzed to a conclusion, and the 
purposely illiterate dialect, which 
has thirteen too many "sees," just 
doesn't ring true. 

"Black Water." by Findlay 
Stevenson, also builds up to a 
weak conclusion. The beginning 
and the middle are excellent. The 
passages conveying the sense of 
reeling drunkeness are exception- 
ally well-handled; in fact, the 
trick technique which Stevenson 
uses is in this instance quite ef- 
fective. But one suspects that he 
didn't know how to finish his 
story with a real punch, a dilem- 
ma welNknown to any writer. Mr. 
Stevenson has real ability, how- 
ever, and I personally hope to 
hear more of him in the future. 

The most skillfully handled 

piece, from start to finish, is 
Douglas Carmichael's "No Other 
Spring." The Contributor's sec- 
tion remarks that his is a studied 
style. My own impression is that 
it is an effective style because it 
is so smooth and simple. With; the 
least ado, Carmichael tells his 
story, and it is the story and its 
moving climax which one remem- 
bers. Too often, I repeat, catchy 
methods, unconvincing dialects, 
and streams of consciousness 
which led nowhere and are insig- 
nificant in themselves, have ob- 
ssesed our contributors to the 
Quill. The mistake of confusing 
the means with the ends for the 
sake of "literature" appeared all 
too often. Carmichael once again 
proves the inevitable fact that 
there is no substitute for a good 
story well (meaning simply and 
directly) told. 

I have presumed upon the re- 
quest for a review of the Quill to 
discuss its particular problem as 
I see it. If some of my opinions 
have seemed harsh rather than 
kind, please remember that Polly- 
anna, who couldn't take anything 
but praise, never grew up, I have 
troubled to be explicit for two 
reasons. First, I think that the 
board is now working on the 
soundest policy that has been 
shaped to date and is intelligent 
enough to achieve something 
solid. Secondly, I shouldn't have 
troubled if I did not think that 
the board will push on to its real 
capacity, and demand stories 
which are significant, well-written, 
and thoroughly thought-through. 
It is because I sincerely want 
to help the Quill, if I can, that I 
have spoken directly. 

By Jack Craven 

Among the more minor casual- 
ties brought to the Bowdoin Cam- 
pus by this War to End Humanity 
is, we feel, the abolishment of Proc 
Night. And from a careful scrutiny 
of the Trend of The Times at home 
and abroad, one might safely say 
that Proc Night is dead, quite 
dead, sir. 

Something there waa about 
Proc Night that didn't love a 
Confused Freshman, for usually 
his clothes were ripped off 
quicker than he could say, 
"What class are you?" And 
should he have had the improb- 
able luck to be on top of someone 
else pulling off clothes (In exhil- 
aration, of course), the shivering 
victim would arise finally to 
shake hands with his roommate- 

In spite of their overwhelming 
numbers, mastermind planning, 
and defiant singing of "Phi Chi,'* 
the Freshmen always came out sec- 
ond best. They just hadn't learned 
how to tell a sophomore from any- 
one else, the poor, naive simple- 

Worthy of mention is that pe- 
culiar type of freshman who 
bound his clothes to his cadaver 
with rolls of adhesive tape. Little 
did he realize that on The Night, 
the relative values of clothes- 
still-on and a pound of flesh were 
practically interchangeable, 
The walk back from Pickard to 
the dorms presents, however, the 
real phenomenon. The weather is 
invariably crisp, if not downright 
cold, and yet most of these chap- 
pies, wearing nothing more than

Glee Club Plans 
Active Season 







In spite of the fact that travel 
has been curtailed, Professor TU- 
lotson announces that the Glee 
Club plans to be active this year. 
There will be two presentations of 
"The Messiah", by Handel. One 
will be given here at Bowdoin, and 
the other in Portland. The per- 
formance will be made by the 
Glee Clubs of Bowdoin, Bradford 
Junior College, Colby, New. Hamp- 
shire, and the Portland City Sing- 
ing Organization. The highlight 
of the season will be the presenta- 
tion of Brahms' Requiem with 
Radcliffe College Glee Club and 
the Harvard Perian Orchestra. 
This will be given here and at the' 
Saunders Theatre in Cambridge. 
The double quartet will sing with 
the glee club on its tours. A set 
of records will be made by the 
double quartet. -The Sunday 
choir also will take part in the 
glee club concerts. 

The music department is trying 
hard to organize a string ensem- 
ble. Professor Tillotson says that 
Peter J. H. Mason '46 is an excel- 
lent violinist. All interested in 
the string ensemble are asked to 
see either Mason or Professor 

Bowdoin is to have a musical 
treat in the six chamber music 
concerts planned for' this year. 
The first of these will be held in 
the Moulton Union on November 
20. It is to be a song recital by 
Olga Alvarine. There are to be 
three concerts by the Curtis string 
quartet with assisting artists and 
two concerts given by a trio — 
violin, cello, and piano. 

Those who like to listen to good 
music will also be interested in 
the student recitals. The first of 
these is to be given on November 
15. Professor Tiilotson uses only 
college talent in * these recitals, 
and urges all interested in per- 
forming to talk to him about it. 

The music department in con- 
junction with Professor Charles 
T. Burnett of the Psychology de- 
partment is offering a series of 
tests which are, according to Pro- 
fessor Tillotson, "scientific tests 
to show a man's reaction to and 
ability to distinguish contrasts in 
the fundamental material of 
which music is mode." These "sea- 
shore tests" are open to 'anyone 
in the college. 

The inter-fraternity singing con- 
test will be held this year just be- 
fore the inter-fraternity track

cheerleader, announces that at 
the Amherst football rally to be 
held Friday night on the Art 
Building steps, Ensign Peter 
Hall, Amherst '40, will say « 
few words < hi defense of his 
alma mater. There will also be 
another speaker.

Vitamins and the War 

The head of the chemistry de- 
partment at Oberlin College then 
treated one of the subjects he spe- 
cializes in, namely vitamins. 'He 
showed how vitamins A, B-l, and 
C could be of great importance in 
the war. 

Vitamin A counteracts the afflic- 
tion known as night blindness, sig- 
nificant in times of blackouts and 
night fighting. 

Vitamin C combats toxins fotnd 
in certain industries, such as bfen- 
zine and lead. By experimenting 
with mice, a Free French dodjtor 
named linger found that injections 
of the vitamin would enable mice 
to live after being wounded to»an 
extent previously found fatal. Ap- 
plying this to humans, doctors 
found that an injection of one gram

Wilmot B. Mitchell Will 
Speak In Sunday Chapel 

Next Sunday at the chapel ser- 
vices, Wilmot B. Mitchell, Litt. 
D, L. H. D. Edward Little Pro- 
fessor of Rhetoric and Oratory, 
Emeritus, will speak. Professor 
Mitchell graduated from Bowdoin 
in 1890, and he came back in 1893 
as an instructor in Rhetoric and 
Oratory. In 1897 he became a pro- 
fessor and continued in that duty 
until 1939 when he became Pro- 
fessor Emeritus. 

Mitchell is the author of sev- 
eral bopks: among them "Elijah 
Kellogg, the Man and His 
Work" and "Lincoln, the Man and 
the Crisis". 

operative shock so serious as to be 
deemed fatal. Experiments contin- 
ue in this field, and Dr. Holmes, 
who was born in 1879, observed 
that if he were of an age to fight 
he would want to have some vit- 
amin C along in case he were only 
"half killed." 
Vitamin C In Desert War 

The British and Germans are 
ahead of us in the use of vitamins 
for specialized fighting units. Vit- 
amin C must be replaced when men 
perspire freely, so it was undoubt- 
edly, a weapon used by both sides in 
the war in Egypt. Dr. Hoi meg hop-» 
ed that the Marines in the Solo- 
mons were getting their vitamin C. 
Vitamin B and Sea Sickness

nerves and a general invigorant 
and thus important for all war 
workers. B-l has been proved to 
overcome nausea. Relating his ef- 
forts to have the Navy test its ef- 
fects on sea sickness, particularly 
on destroyers. Dr. Holmes said that 
he encountered what he called "yes, 
butting" on the part of officials. 
Such an experiment would upset 
the destroyer routine, one officer 
told him. However, Dr. Holmes has 
succeeded in having the Canadian 
Navy test B-l and expects a report 

every ciitzen to be brazen if neces- 
sary in order to get things done. 

Dr. Holmes admitted having had 
to be bold in proposing his remedies 
in Washington, but said that "war 
is war" and that it was the duty of 
every citizen to be brazen if neces- 
sary in order to get things done. 

Last Saturday afternoon. Presi- 
dent and Mrs. K. C. M. Sills gave 
a tea in honor of the new faculty 
members and their wives, Dr. and 
Mrs. Y. C. Yang, Mr. and Mrs. 
J. H. Korson, and Dr. and Mrs. D. 
E. Christie. In attendance were 
faculty members, alumni, mem- 
bers of the Naval School, and rep- 
resentatives of the four under- 
graduate classes. 

The College is indeed fortunate 
in securing the services of the fa- 
mous Dr. Y. C. Yang as the visit- 
ing professor of the Tallman 
Foundation. Dr. Yang is Presi- 
dent-in-exile of Soochow Univer- 
sity in China. After studying in 
China he came to the United 
States to attend the University of 
Wisconsin. He later transferred 
to George Washington University 
where he received his Master of 
of Arts and LL.D. degrees. Dr. 
Yang has served in the Chinese 
Legation in Washington and has 
been very prominent in interna- 
tional affairs. For the first seme- 
ster Dr. Yang is offering a course 
in Chinese history and culture, 
and a course in Modern China 
during the second semester. For 
those unable to take his courses 
Dr. Yang will give, during the 
year public lectures which all stu- 
dents are urged to attend. 

Dan E. Christie, Ph.D., instruc- 
tor in the Physics department, is 
a Bowdoin graduate of the Class 
of 1937. He entered college as one 
of the State of Maine scholars. 
The Chi Psi fraternity, of which 
he is a member, may well be proud 
of Mr. Christie because of his out- 
standing record. He was the most 
brilliant student in his class, and 
was the winner of the Smyth 
Mathematics Prize. He was 
awarded the Charles Carroll Ever- 
ett Scholarship, studying at Cam- 
bridge University in England and 
later at Princeton, where he did 
some teaching along with his 
graduate work. He was Phi Beta 
Kappa from Bowdoin and was 
nominated as the College's candi- 
date for the Rhodes Scholarship. 

The third new member of the 
faculty is Jay Henry Korson, A.M., 
who graduated from Villanova in 
1931, after which he received his 
Master of Arts degree at Yale. 
While at Yale he was assistant 
professor of economics. Later he 
taught at New York University in 
the School of Commerce. Mr. 
Korson comes to Bowdoin as in- 
structor in economics and socio- 
logy, succeeding Dr. Lusher who 
has accepted a position with the 
OPA in Washington.

WITH THE girls arriving 
Thursday afternoon and leaving 
Saturday or Sunday, and with 
dances here at the college, it 
seems to us that the authorities 
could better control New Year's 
Eve than if celebrants were allow- 
ed to run loose. Considering the 
two points we have made, it 
seems that the idea has merit. 
However, there are probably many 
difficulties. We're not at all sure 
that the student body in general 
is in favor of the plan. We have 
talked with a few, among some of 
whom the plan originiated, and 
have heard only a few objections. 
If the college authorities will con- 
sider the plan the Orient will 
gladly run a poll to ascertain the 
feelings of the student body. In 
any case, we feel safe in saying 
that the undergraduates are in 
favor of a houseparty, be it 
Christmas ' or New Year's.

The speaker stated that the ex- 
perience gained in the last war 
may be used as a guide, in part, 
for determining what should be 
the limitations upon academic 
freedom of thought and speech 
during the present conflict. 

Professor Kirkland closed by 
saying that the college should be 
a citadel, strong against oppres- 
sion, and, that it can only lighten 
the coming darkness, if it has kept 
alive spiritual and intellectual 
values in other moments of peril.

Dolan pointed out that because 
of the war, the Constitution of the 
Student Council proved to be in- 
adequate in some cases, particu- 
larly in the clauses governing the 
time for class elections. The fol- 
lowing amendment was passed 
to meet this condition: "The 
President of the Student Council 
shall have the war time power to 
determine the time of class elec- 
tions." , 

The Council elected several men 
to fill special campus positions. 
W. Bradford Briggs was selected 
to represent the Council and the 
College at the annual meeting of 
the National Interfraternity Con- 
ference to be held in New York 
on November 27-28. Robert W. 
Morse was elected to head the an- 
nual Red Cross drive in Bowdoin. 
W. Martin Roberts was appointed 
officially as head cheer leader.

Lord Jeffs Capitalize On Bowdoin i Miscues; Swamp Polar Bears 25-0 

Four Amherst Backs Score After 
Big White Holds For First Half 

By Paul Da vMiton 

The jolting jarring Jeffmen of Amherst, capitalizing on 
four breaks of their own making, powered their way to a 25-0 
victory over a valiant, but outplayed, Bowdoin team. Held 
scoreless for two periods by the Big White's line the Jeffs 
broke loose in the second half, scoring a pair of touchdowns 
in each of the last two quarters on a blocked punt by Captain 
"Bud" Hasse, two interceptions by Rollie Smith and Vernon 
Williams' recovery of a Bowdoin fumble. 

Twice the bears clawed their way 
toward the Amherst goal line only 
to lack sufficient drive to reach pay 
dirt. In the very opening minutes 
of play a Beckler to Dolan pass, 
good for 35 yards, followed by a 
seven-yard advance on a lateral 
from Elliot to Dolan swept the 
Bowdoin attack to the Jeffs' eleven. 
But the Walshmen lost possession 
on downs. Again in the final quarter 
on the wings of Elliot and John- 
stone aerials the Big White reached 
the enemy's seven-yard stripe 
where once more it lost the ball on 

Fought to a standstill in the first 
half, Amherst's big backs were not 
to be denied in the next two pe- 
riods. Early in the third period 
Beckler's punt, blocked by Captain 
Hasse, fell into Amherst's hands 
on Bowdoin's 28. Then Jim Carey, 
running like a big bloodhound with 
his nose to the ground, battered his 
way toward the goal line in four 
plays together with a successful 

Amherst's next touchdown came 
minutes later when "Vern" Wil- 
liams broke thru to fall on Dick- 
son's fumble on Bowdoin 's 28. This 
time it was Jim Carey's brother, 
Frett, who raced into the end zone 
on a wide end run. The Jeffs scored 
their last two tallies in the last pe- 
riod when, their -6-laot 200-pound 
fullback, Rollie Smith picked off 
two Bowdoin passes and moved the 
ball down into scoring position, 
where, sparked by a pile driver in

Student Finds Riding Weekend 
Diversion -- On Horse And Train 

By BUI Craigie 

Many and varied were the events 
which featured this past week end, 
among which Were the game, the 
dance, the weather, and — oh yes, 
the girls. These creatures were cer- 
tainly among the nicest available, 
and we'd die for them. But we ques- 
tion — and rightfully, we think — the 
lengths that one person went to for 
his companion. 

Everything started out all rignt 
for this member of the class of 
1945. He and his girl saw the 
game, and attended the dance — 
everything was fine, and they had 
a good time. ' However, Saturday 
was merely the beginning of events 
for this young gentleman, and on 
Sunday, he and his girl decided to 
go for a bit of a ride to break the 
monotony. The horses, spirited 
steeds both, were hired, and the 
two were ready to mount. The 
young lady was a bit dubious, hav- 
ing in her life never ridden any- 
thing more lively than a 1938 mod- 
el pogostick, but she bravely clarm 
bered on, albeit clumsily. The gal- 
lant steed was off at a gait resem- 
bling that of the local postman 
known affectionately as The Creep- 

Gaily they rode away, across tha 

fields, the woods, and the frater- 
nity house flower beds and shrubs. 
The clean, sweet air blew in their 
faces, and they romped on across 
the hinterland till they came to a 
field wherein were a farmer and a 
bull. The horse, attracted by the 
bull (perhaps he thought it was a 
horse of another color) sidled near- 
er and nearer to that dangerous 
bovine. Our girl friend's horse had 
evidently just been washed, be- 
cause she couldn't do a thing with 
it. but merely asked the farmer to 
slap her horse, and maybe he'd 
move in another direction. 

This was good horse sense, all 
right, but she forgot to calculate 
the speed at which the animal 
would navigate in the new direc- 
tion. The farmer obligingly gave 
the equine a vigorous slap on the 
withers, and he reacted most vio- 
lently. (How would you like to 
have your withers slapped?) He 
pointed his nose due east, folded 
his landing gear, and took off at 
break-neck speed. (Guess whose 
neck.) The poor girl hung on as 
long as she could, affectionately 
grasping the animal by the neck, 
and soothing it with such words as 
"Stop! Whoa!! Help!!!" Soon after

Don Lancaster Named 
As Adviser, Auditor 
To Dance Committee 

At the regular weekly meeting 
of the Student Council last Mon- 
day night, several questions about 
the conduct of fraternity hazing 
were clarified. It was also an- 
nounced at this time that Dono- 
van D. Lancaster would act as 
auditor and adviser of the dance 

Concerning the fraternity haz- 
ing rules, the Council decided that 
all hazing done at meal time must 
be concluded three quarters of an 
hour after the beginning of the 
meal. In connection with the 
policy of allowing one hour eve- 
ning sessions a week, it was de- 
cided that the entire delegation 
must be entertained within a one 
hour time limit, and not include 
an hour per man as in some cases 
reported. The carrying out of the 
traditional freshman duties was 
declared permissable. 

At the request of the College, 
Donovan D. Lancaster is to be a 
committee of one to audit all 
Dance Committee activities. He 
is to act particularly in an ad- 
visory capacity. John A. Went- 
worth, Jr. is chairman of the 
Student Council Dance Commit- 
tee, and working under him are 
George W. Hutchings and C. Clark 
Young, Jr. 

The Dance Committee announc- 
ed that the Bowdoin Polar Bears 
will play at .the Williams foot- 
ball dance. As yet, no definite 
plans have been made for the 
Maine game. 

In chapel last Friday, Robert V. 
Senna be 1 '44, accompanied by the 
double quartet, sang a song entitled 
"Old Bowdoin." It was announced 
that the music had been composed 
by Professor Charles T. Burnett, 
and that this was the first public 
presentation of the melody. A large 
audience received the song very en- 
thusiastically, and we were imme- 
diately impressed that it might 
well be popularized and added per- 
ffiSnTmryto the BowTJofrt repetoirlT 

Upon investigating, we found 
that this "new" song actually has 
an extremely interesting and com- 
plex history. The composer, Profes- 
sor Burnett, has been at the Col- 
lege for thirty-eight years, and 
during that time has absorbed a 
great deal of Bowdoin. The out- 
growth of his enthusiasm for the 
college has been manifested in 
many ways with "Old Bowdoin" 
being the most recent public con- 

We learned from Dr. Burnett 
that the words were written by 
Clarence Webster Peabody of the 
class of 1893, who later was to be- 
come a prominent Portland judge. 
The poem first appeared in a vol- 
ume entitled "Bowdoin Verse," ed- 
ited by John Clair Minott '96, and 
containing poetry written between 
1883 and 1907 by undergraduates! 
and alumni. 

Professor Burnett explained that 
the music was actually written 
over thirty years ago, although it : 
has never been presented publicly j 
before this. He said that at the ' 
time of its composition he had felt i 
that the College needed some good 
college songs, and it was also 
about this time thta he wrote the 
music for "Rise Sons of Bowdoin." 
This song gained in popularity 
soon after its introduction since 
the Glee Club took it up right 

Before attempting to write any 


more music, Professor Burnett 
hunted extensively for a suitable 
lyric. In Peabody's poem, he felt 
that he had found* some of the most 
beautiful lines yet written about 
the College, and with this poem for 
a base, he composed a folk song 
type of melody. 

Although the music was publish- 
ed privately by Dr. Burnett soon 
afterward, the songj«as never pre- 
sented in pubhe^and Jaccprdifig to 
the author, cifd^noiieem to catch 
on as had the first! melody. A few 
years ago, however, it was suggest- 
ed that the piece be arranged for a 
double quartet and a soloist. The 
presentation last Friday was the 
culmination of this work. 

Professor Tillotson has said that 
the song is comparable to Cornell's 
"Far Above Cayuga's Waters" in 
its mood and tempo. He feels that 
it has great possibilities because it 
is simple, has a fine folk song 
rhythm, is within easy range, and 
contains some of the best words in 
Bowdoin literature. The song will 
be added to the Glee Club repetoire 
very soon, he added, and* mimeo- 
graphed copies of the words will 
be distributed among the houses 
within two weeks. 

The text of the song is as fol- 


A title of honor, a glorious name. 
You've heard the world speak it, 

"Old Bowdoin." 
But what do we care for the glory 

and fame —

Achorn Debate Trials 
Will Be Held Monday 

The trials for the annual 
Achorn Prize Debate will be held 
this year in Hubbard Hall on Mon- 
day, October 19, at 7 p.m. The 
Achorn Prize consists of the annual 
income from $1,214, which was be- 
queathed to the college by Edgar 
O. Achorn, of the Class of 1881. It 
is awarded for, excellence in a de- 
bate held between members of the 
freshman and sophomores. 

Each entrant in the competition 
will present a five-minute argu- 
ment favoring one side of the fol- 
lowing proposition: 

Resolved: that this hous? favors j 
the principle of drafting men andi 
women to meet not only military 
but also industrial and occupation- 1

Tryouts Will Be Held 
For "H.M.S. Pinafore" 

To-morrow afternoon at 5:00 
P. M., tryouts will be held in 
the Masque and Gown office in 
Memorial Hall for the reading 
or Gilbert and Sullivan's "H.M. 
S. Pinafore", which is to be 
presented in conjunction with 
the recordings on the Simpson 
Sound on Wednesday evening, 
October 28. The Gilbert 

and Sullivan production has 
become an annual affair, with 
music supplied by recordings 
and the dialogue read by actors 
of the Masque and Gown. Fresh- 
men and others with little dra- 
matic experience are especially 
urged to try 944, as the roles 
are not exacting. This year's 
performance is being directed 
by Douglas Carmichael '44, 
while Robert V. Schnabel '44 
will supervise the recordings. 


Due to the active interest shown 
by the student body in the revival 
of Professor Charles T. Burnett's 
song "Old Bowdoin," Professor 
Frederic E. T. Tillotson, head of 
the music department, has express- 
ed the hope that a Bowdoin song 
book be published. 

The song book, if published, 
would be divided into three general 
parts. The first section devoted to 
Bowdoin songs; the second consist- 
ing of the better know.i songs of 
other colleges ; while the last would 
include popular favorites such as 

A nucleus of about twenty good 
Bowdoin songs will be necessary 
before such a project may be un- 
dertaken. Professor Burnett has 
written several songs, of which the 
best known is "Rise, Sons of Bow- 
doin." In June, 1940, Losing Pratt 
'12 sent Professor Tillotson five 
songs which would be good materi- 
al for such a project. Processor Til- 
lotson urges any alumni or stu- 
dents who wish to do so to con- 
tribute one or more songs. He guar- 
antees that they will be given the 
full attention of the music depart-' 
ment 1 

Several colleges, sucn as Har- 
vard, Yale, and Amherst, have pub- 
lished similar song books in past 
years, but more recently, such edi- 
tions have appeared on the cam- 
puses of Wesleyan and Trinity. 

In order to succeed, such & proj- 
ect should receive generous support 
from the alumni, as weU as from 
the student body. 

This evening at 8.15 at the Moul- 
ton Union the Music Department 
will present the first of the new 
series of modern masterpieces of 
music. Programs have already been 
posted at various points on the 
campus. The program this evening 
consists of Dmitri Szostakowicy's 
Sixth Symphony and Frederick 
Delius' "On Hearing the First' 
Cuckoo in the Spring." Both works 
are classics of the modern school. 

The concerts are prepared by 
Robert Schnabel, '44 and made 
possible by the elaborate phono- 
graphic system purchased by the 
Music Department with money 
from the Simpson Fund. 

The works will be presented 
without interruption. All students 
interested in the musical reflec- 
tions of present-day Russia and 
England will find the concert anl 
intellectual feast, according to 

The new series of recorded con- 
certs will be spread throughout the 
school year in 14 programs. The 
series will offer works from all 
phases of modern musical expres- 
sion in a fast-changing world. 

Weekend Program Planned 
For Parents Of Freshmen 

Returns to date indicate that the thirteenth annual Fa- 
thers' Day to be observed this Saturday may bring as many 
parents to the campus as last year, according to Donovan D. 
Lancaster. The program of activities and entertainment begins 
Friday and will last through Sunday. 

Richardson To Speak 
To Witan Next Week 

The first meeting of the Witan 
this fall will be held next Wednes- 
day in the Barn Chamber at 8:15 
P. M. Edward Richardson '43. will 
read a paper on the "Poetry of 
George Meridith", and an election 
of new officers will be held. 

Meetings of the Witan, an or- 
ganization primarily of English 
majors, are regularly held every 
other Wednesday, but since Wed- 
nesday seems an unfavorable day 
due to the coincidence of other ac- 
tivities, plans for a different time 
of meeting will be discussed at 
the meeting. 

Membership in the Witan is not 
closed, and any student is wel- 
come if he gives notice to the sec- 
retary previous to the meeting. 
The present officers are, John Ja- 
ques '43, Chairman, and Crawford 
B. Thayer '44, Secretary. Profes- 
sor Stanley P. Chase is the Facul- 
ty Advisor.

According to bandleader George 
A. Burpee '44, the Bowdoin Polar 
Bears, undergraduate swing band, 
have completed a highly success- 
ful season which included engage- 
ments at Portland, Bath, Dexter 
and other cities. Under the di- 
rection of Burpee they recently 
opened the fall and winter season 
at a Hundred Club dance in the 
Eastland Ballroom, Portland. 

The band has played at informal 
gym dances for the Tufts and 
Amherst football week ends, and 
another in the series will be held 
on Saturday evening following the 
Williams game. Several other en- 
gagements in various pdrts of the 
state are also in prospect for the 

New members of the Polar 
Bears, recruits from the incoming 
freshman class, are Bud Sweet, 
sax; Dick Baker, drums; Cliff 
Little bass; and Larry Ward, 
piano. Others in the band are 
Bud Crosby, Bob Cinq-mars, Ted 
Bubier and Ken Morse, saxes; 

Jack Hurley, Pete Hess and Don 
Lockhart, trumpets; and Mart 
Goodspeed, Russ Sweet and Sandy 
Burpee, trombones. 


Professor Korgen And 
Mrs. Daggett Play 
Leading Roles Again 

Opening its fall season Friday, 
October 16, the Masque and Gown 
will again present Lillian Hell- 
man's "Watch On The Rhine." 
According to Director George H. 
Quinby the popularity of the pro- 
duction was so great in its sum- 
mer presentation that public de- 
mand caused it to be presented 
again. With but three exceptions 
the cast will be the same as that 
of the previous production. 

The graduation of William Mc- 
Keown this summer left the ro- 
mantic lead open; thus part will 
be played by Howard L. Huff '43, 
while the vacancies left by Dr. 
and Mrs. David Lusher, who are 
now in Washington, D. C, will be 
filled by Stephen Merrill and 
Elizabeth Smith. 

The play, which is still running 
on the professional stage, is new 
to amateur production; the Mas-

Although the final date has not 
been determined, Frank D. Mc- 
Keon '43 has received assurances 
that Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt 
will come to Bowdoin in Novem- 
ber to speak under the sponsor- 
ship of the Delta Upsilon Frater- 
nity's annual lecture fund. 

This fund, which brings famous 
people to lecture here each year, 
is maintained by all members of 
the local D. U. chapter. In previ- 
ous years, the income of the fund 
has enabled Bowdoin to hear Al- 
exander Woolcott, Bertrand Rus- 
sell, and Hugo Black. A schedul- 
ed lecture last year had to be can- 
ceiled due to the accelerated pro- 

Governor Sumner Sewell, Presi- 
dent Kenneth C. M. Sills, Dean 
Paul Nixon, and other faculty 
members will attend the banquet 
given for Mrs. Roosevelt at the 
D. U. House. Although the exact 
date is not known, the lecture 
will be at 8:30 P. M. in the Con- 
gregational Church. 

Immediately after ' the lecture 
Mrs. Roosevelt will hold a panel 
session. At that time members 
of the Delta Upsilon Fraternity 
will discuss points of her lecture 
with her. Al 10:45 P. M. a buf- 
fet supper will be served to which 
the faculty members and their 
wives are invited, v

With a nation-wide gas. rubber, 
and metal restrictions, the Ameri- 
can motor-car should no longer be 
considered as a household neces- 
sity like the living-room sofa and 
console radio, but as a means of 
transportation to be used only ii» 
vital emergencies. How viral these 
emergencies depend on w letter 
you have an A, B, C, or S card. 

One device which seems to offer 
some tangible aid in the solution of 
the gas and automobile prob'em is 
the bicycle. The bicycle was ence 
regarded as a childhood amuse- 
ment, outgrown at the age of six- 
teen, or whenever the state let you 
have a driver's license. But now as 
one looks across the leaf -sprinkled 
Bowdoin campus, he se?s people of 
all mentalities using this remark- 
able invention. Between t: e dorms 
are found fewer battered cenverti- 
bles and painted jalopies, and mere 
and more bicycles. Just this sum- 
mer some undergraduate appeared 
with a rather uncertain-looking 

reliquc of the gay nineties, but 
which apparently functions prop- 

Bowdoin bicycling, however, is 
not limited to the student body. 
Many members of the faculty have 
taken up this method of cenvey- 
ence with surprising as well as 
amusing results. 

Fcremost among the faculty bi- 
cyclists is Professor Tommy Means, 
of the dead-language department. 
He claims an ability to "rido back- 
wards as well a»forwarJs, and also 
no-hands." and will glidly demon- 
strate his talents to anyone with 
sufficient spare time. 

Perhaps the oldest bike pedaler 
on the faculty is Professor Stanley 
Smith. His brilliant combination of 
wheel and tripod might be a 
worthwhile suggestion for the com- 
plaining Sunday driver. 

The faculty's classicists are not 
the only bike riders. Professor 
Hammond daily proves that* a 
mathematician can do anything by

We often wonder just how much the 
war is affecting the routine life of the 
undergraduates. To all appearances, the 
College is going along much as it always 
has during the past few years, except 
for a definite trend of the upperclassmen 
to dig in and work harder. But Bowdoin 
seems to be a long way from all that is 
going on, and at times, we suspect that 
little thought is given to outside affairs. 

The presence of the naval unit on 
campus does serve to remind us that bus- 
iness is not as usual. How many actually 
, are well acquainted wtih the develop- 
ments in the war theatre, however. 
Headlines are glanced over and perhaps 
supplemented by hasty news reports on 
the radio, but the war still seems to be 
far, far away. ' 

Many undergraduates received an 
awakening jolt last week, though, when 
we got word from Andy Haldane con- 
cerning his activities in the Solomons 
along with two other men of his own 
class. Those of us who knew these fel- 
lows couldn't help but stop and take 
notice. We like to feel that Andy stands 
for the spirit of American youth in this 
war. The letter that he wrote is certainly 
a fine example of courage and hope and 

It must have infused new energy in 
many of us, and awakened us to the 
realization that we are duty-bound to 
finish our education as rapidly as possi- 
ble and go down to help the boys. The 
state series ought* to be a corker this fall, 
but some how it doesn't seem to be too 
important now. Games with much higher 
stakes are being played in other parts of 
the world-^-the football captain of two 
seasons ago is in that game, and he's 
showing the same leadership and aggres- 
siveness that we saw on Whittier Field 
not long ago. 

Andy's letter made a lot of us think 
more of the war and stimulated many in- 
to an increasing consciousness of our 
positions here. The very recent news of 
the Solomon battle has served to bring 
even closer the full significance of Andy's- 
position. We're coming! 


From all angles during the past week, 
the campus broke into song, martial 
strains, and sweet and low with a cer- 
tain perspicuousness that made everyone 
realize that music holds a very definite 
place in campus life today. It seemed to 
come from every direction and without 
any apparent previously worked out plan 
of publicity — just a spontaneous demon- 
stration df Bowdoin music. A great many 
were heard to remark about at least one 
or two of these activities. 

We first became conscious of the mu- 
sical activities when Bob Schnabel sang 
Professor Burnett's "Old Bowdoin" in 
chapel last Friday. Its enthusiastic recep- 
tion at the time augurs well for the addi- 
tion of a new tune to the Bowdoin col- 
lection, and we sincerely hope that it will 
continue to be well received and popu- 
larized. We could be made more familiar 
with the musk if the band were to fea- 
ture an arrangement. Professor Tiflot- 

son has announced that the Glee Club 
will do all that it can to help stimulate in- 
terest in the song, and at the same time, 
copies of the words will be distributed 
among the fraternities in the hope that 
everyone can become familiar with the 
. words. Many would appreciate the 
chance to carry away another, more tan- 
gible memory of Bowdoin. We don't 
know much about music, but the song 
sounded good at the first hearing, and 
we hope that it will be picked up by as 
• many as possible. 

The debut of the band at the game on 
Saturday was also met with much ap- 
proval, and many felt that even in this 
short time, Lieutenant Larsen has done 
a great deal toward organizing a fine 
unit. The large complement of musicians 
seemed to be particularly enthusiastic, 
and the addition of the glockenspiel and 
two magnificent drum majors did much 
to qnhance the appearance of the group. 
We hope that this marks the beginning 
of a fine season. . 

Then again this Saturday evening, the 
Polar Bears attracted a large crowd to 
the gym dance. There have been many 
remarks of their excellence this fall, and 
they certainly have been better received 
than many of the football importations 
of previous seasons. 

Of course the entire musical program 
was brought particularly to attention 
earlier this fall by the chapel program. 
The new hymnals have proved to be very 
popular and the weekly chapel program 
of songs approved heartily. Attendance 
at these weekly sings has thus far out 
numbered other chapel programs by far. 

We're quite sure that Bowdoin morale 
is high, and it is due in no small part to 
the musical program. Please take a bow, 
Mr. Tillotson. 


For several seasons, now, a few of the 
campus clubs and organizations have 
been limping along with barely enough 
men interested in their activities to war- 
rant the continuation of the program. In 
fact only during the past year the Po- 
litical Forum gave up the ghost and 
ceased to function. We're not in a posi- 
tion to even suggest why interest has 
lagged in some of these extra curricular 
activities, but we feel that this would be 
an excellent time for a rejuvenation of 
some groups. 

Perhaps one of the most serious ob- 
stacles faced by these groups during past 
years has been the necessity of carrying 
on a great deal of the program during 
the week end, and naturally, many men 
were attracted to other places during 
this time. Conditions have changed some 
what now, though. Transportation diffi- 
culties have forced many to stay on cam- 
pus over the week ends, and wefeel that 
this will be particularly apparent after 
the football season is over. 

Then, too, many would welcome the 
opportunity to take up some varied work 
in order to get a little relaxation during 
this accelerated program. If an attractive 
schedule were presented, many who pre- 
viously ignored these activities might be- 
come interested. Certainly many organ- 
izations would benefit greatly from the 
infusion of this new blood, and conse- 
quently, a permanent and lasting admin- 
istration might be formed. 

There is perhaps even room for several 
new groups to function in connection 
with some of the war time measures and 
opportunities. Other colleges have been 
carrying on extensive programs of farm 
relief work or more recently particularly 
of scrap metal collection. There must be 
a number of public spirited students who 
would welcome the opportunity to help 
in this manner. 

It seems that with the strengthening of 
old clubs and the possible formation of 
new groups, we could do a great deal to 
promote a certain campus solidarity and 
unity that may be lacking now. The nec- 
essary confinement of men in Brunswick 
during this winter will mean that we will 
become much better acquainted with 
Bowdoin and Brunswick. The decrease 
in enrollment will mean that we will 
have a better chance to become acquaint- 
ed with one another. These factors cou- 
pled with the effects of the war strain 
may well mark a profound revkalization 
of college life. 



The following men enlisted in 
various branches of the service 
during the past week: Richard W. 
Benjamin '44, Army Enlisted" Re- 
serve Corps; Stuart E. Hayes '44, 
Army Air Corps; Alaii G. Hillman 
'44, Army Air Corps; Thomas S. V. 
Bartlett '45, V-l ; Richard P. Berry 
'45, Marine Reserve Corps; Law- 
rence M. Demarcst '45, V-l ; Brooks 
R. Leavitt '46, V-l. 

Professor Kendriek announces 
that the joint board for officer pro- 
curement is planning to be on 
campus on October 22 and 23. This 
board is made up of representa- 
tives of the army, navy, marines, 
army aviation, and naval aviation. 
On the evening of October 22, 
these officers will hold a general 
meeting in Memorial Hall at 7.30 at 
which time they will present the 
various plans of the. respective 
services. All men who have riot en- 
rolled in some branch are urged to 
attend, and any others who are in- 
terested will be "welcome. On the 
next day, Friday, October 23, each 
of the five branches will be estab- 
lished in separate rooms in the 
Moulton Union for interviews. 
These will not be enlistment meet- 
ings, strictly speaking, but will 
serve to acquaint men with the 
offerings of the various services.

On October 27, Lieutenant T. 
MeL. Davis representing the Naval 
Research Laboratory of Anacostia, 
will be on campus to interview men 
interested in doing specialized 
scientific work. He would like to 
see particularly seniors who are 
majoring in chemistry, physics or 
mathematics. Men who are in the 
V-7 program at the present time 
and who are interested jn this field 
are advised to see Lieutenant Dav- 
is. He will hold interviews from 
nine in the morning until five in 
the afternoon.

this, she decided that she was get- 
ting tired of riding anyway, and 
that she'd step olT at the next sta- 
tion. The horse obligingly stopped, 
and she slid off .landing square on 
her riding crop. 

Meanwhile, our hero, not to be 
outdone, had decide he too would 
perform a memorable deed that 
day, a deed that would make his 
name one long remembered and 
spoken with awe. So, when the two 
went to the train, he stepped in- 
side to carry the bag in. They (he 
and the girl) were immediately 
crushed in the ten thousand people 
who seem to be riding on th,e trains 
nowadays, and powerless to move, 
was carried away as the train left 
Brunswick. The conductor collected 
his last sixty-nine cents from him, 
and he made the trip to Portland, 
the train being a limited and not 
stopping at either Frooport or Yar- 

Having again said goodbye, and 
carefully avoided stepping .aboard 
the Boston rattler, the young gen- 
tleman wandered through Portland 
as best he could, and, standing up- 
on the Baxter Boulevard, holding 
out his thumb in a supplicatory 
manner, was picked up by a whole- 
sale grocery delivery truck. The 
gentleman explained that he had 
some deliveries to make, and would 
the young man help him ? Certainly 
he would, and the young man spent 
the next hour carrying boxes and 
bags to the best back doors in Fal- 
mouth Foreside. At the Country 
Club, they both worked half an 
hour, and finally emptied the 

"Now we'll get somewhere," 
thought our hero, rubbing his blis- 
tered hands in glee. But in vain! 
The truck had reached the end of 
the line. With a cheery "Goodbye, 
thanks a lot!" ringing in his ears, 
our young traveler again took up 
the weary road to Brunswick. 

This time he had better luck, and 
was offered a ride by a civilian car. 
The only trouble that happened all 
during the fine, companionable ride, 
was a small, trivial, hardly-worth- 
mentioning blowout. Our friend fix- 
ed the tire, while the driver kept 
him amply supplied with conversa- 
tion. Having, repaired the precious 
rubber, they proceeded on their 
merry way, almost into Brunswick. 
There the car stopped, and again 
the young man was alone. This 
time, dirty, ragged, weary, he stag- 
gered the last few hundred yards

Organized last year by Leonard 
B. Tennyson '42 and Vance N. 
Bourjailry '44, the organization 
has not been until this year an 
official Bowdoin acUvity, although 
supported by a special fund al- 
lotted for the purpose by Presi- 
dent Sills. Since then about 20 
programs have been given, pre- 
senting vocal soloists, the Med- 
diebempsters, such well-known 
College speakers as President 
Sills. Professor Robert P. T. Cof- 
ftn and Dean Paul Nixon, and a 
Round Table discussion. Last 
season's staff was headed by 
Vance Bourjailly as director, and 
George Craigie, Bill Baier. Ken- 
neth Snow, and Crawford Thayer 
as alternate producers. 

Since "Bowdoin on the Air" is 
no longer a first-year experiment, 
it has been, since the smoker last 
night an official Bowdoin activi- 
ty and it will be supported by a 
separate fund from the Blanket 
tax. The new officers will be an- 
nounced next week. Bill Baier has 
been elected to the post of di- 
rector, but three or four new- 
producers must be selected. As- 
sistant Professor Albert R. Thay- 
er and Professor Cecil S. Holmes 
are serving as the Faculty Advis- 

This year the "Bowdoin on the 
Air" staff is planning, in addition 
to the type of program presented 
last year, short dramatic sketches, 
and perhaps instrumental soloists. 
Professor Coffin is scheduled to 
make a return engagement on 
November tenth. Dr. Y. C. Yang 
is to speak and the Meddiebemp- 
sters will sing in future programs. 
The trouble with making arrange- 
ments with ASCAP over the songs 
that might be given, which caus- 
ed two programs to to be can- 
celed, seems about to be cleared 
up in the near future. The pro- 
grams are given from the WGAN 
studios in the Columbia Hotel in 
Portland 'on bi-weekly Tuesday 
nights. Although it has been sug- 
gested that studios be set up at 
Bowdoin, the project has been 
abandoned for the duration. An- 
nouncements of the programs will 
appear at the Moulton Union and 
on the Bulletin Board. 

The organization began its of- 
ficial existance last night with the 
opening of the smoker with the 
reception of the program over the 
radio. After the program, a dis- 
cussion of it was held. This policy 
will be continued the rest of the 
year, with the program being re- 
ceived in the B. C. A. room in the 
Moulton Union and discussed at 
its close. Anyone will be welcom- 
ed at these meetings. 

Bowdoin on the Air offers many 
opportunities for positions for 
Freshmen. Script writers, of both 
drama and comedy, are needed, 
as well as men interested in ad- 
ministrative work and music. Any 
and all Freshmen or upperclass- 
men interested should see Bill 
Baier or one of the producers list- 
ed above.

Bowdoin suffered a disheartening defeat at the hands of a heavy, 
experienced Amherst team Saturday, but the toss was certainly not as 
decisive as the 25-0 score would indicate. The outweighed Polar Bear 
line held the Jeff attack in check for the first half, and early in the first 
period a Beckler to Johnstone pass brought the ball into threatening 
position on the Amherst 11-yard line. In the second half Amherst open- 
ed up the Bowdoin defense with a deceptive aerial attack, and with the 
aid of intercepted passes and a blocked kick they rolled up their 25 
points. The heavy, fast charging Amherst line took its toll on "the 
Bowdoin passing game. Johnstone, Pierce, and Beckler were constantly 
rushed while passing, thus throwing the timing of the plays off. 
Jimmy Dolan, although hampered by a bruised foot, peeled off several 
long gains, and perhaps he would have been away for a score, had it not 
been for his injury. Co.-Capt. Dolan has been one of the most consistent 
ground gainers in the State this season, and will be a threat to the 
WiHiams juggernaut next week, and will doubtlessly cause the various 
Maine teams much concern during the three weeks following the Wil- 
liams game.

Williams added to its prestige by amassing a total 
of 52 points against the haptens Clarkson. Princeton, 
previously defeated by Williams, indirectly increased 
William*' fame by stopping the Navy Midshipmen, 
10-0. Either Princeton Is very erratic this fall, or Wil- 
liams has almost invincible power. The situation next 
Saturday will be very similar to that which prevailed 
two years ago when Williams was heavily favored to 
win over the Polar Bear. Bowdoin upset all predictions 
by tying the W UUamstowoers in an exciting, wide 
open battle. At that, Williams had to use a last ditch 
long pass late in the fourth quarter to overtake the 
Big White. So, perhaps Bowdoin, with fair amount of 
breaks, might repeat that performance of two years

The Jayvee gridsters won their opener Friday by nosing out Bridg- 
ton 6-0. The Jayvee team, composed mostly of freshmen, reflected the 
fine coaching of Walt Loeman by keeping the ball in Bridgtoh territory 
for over three quarters of the game. Bowdoin scored in the first half on 
a spectacular 65-yard romp by Jones. Jones, Brilliante, McKay, and 
Pendleton shone for the freshman and should be premising material for 
Adam Walsh in 1943.

The iaterf raternity touch footholl season got un-

triple-threat Bill Muir, assumed the lead by easily 
winning the first two games, in typical rough-and-

que and Gown was one of the first 
amateur groups to attempt its 
presentation. The play is about 
a subject of great contemporary 
interest, the anti-Nazi under- 
ground movement in Germany. 
The play shews that "it can hap- 
pen here", by picturing the effect 
of the war and the organization 
on the lives of ian American 

Miss Helen Varney, popular art 
teacher of Brunswick High School, 
and long a favorite with Bruns- 
wick audiences, will appear in on>\ 
of the leading roles. Representing 
the faculty in the play is mathe- 
matics professor Reinhard Kor- 
gen, supported by faculty wives 
Katherine Daggett. Madeleine Jep- 
pesen and Elizabeth Smith. From 
the student body are Theodora 
Irish '45; Howard Huff '43; and 
Bruce Elliott '45. Peter Riley, 
son of Professor Riley of the Ger- 
man Department is cast as Pro- 
fessor Korgon's precocious son. 

Dedicating each season to some 
person, or group associated with 

the club, the Masque and Gown 
has dedicated its present season 
to James A. Bartlett, Class of 
1906. one of the founders and the 
first president of the organization, 
and for many years its devoted 
friend and adviser. Instrumental 
in the founding of the club, he was 
president during the • season of 
1903 and 1904. and was again 
elected president in the season of 
1905 and 1906. For many years 
before his death last month he 
taught English at Maiden High 
School, Maiden, Mass.. but he al- 
ways maintained an active inter- 
est in Bowdoin dramatics. 

Directed by Assistant Professor 
George H. Quinby, the play was 
very successful when presented 
this summer, and is assured of an 
excellent reception this Friday. 

Much of the success of the play 
was due to the excellent work of 
the production staff: production 
manager, David Lawrence '44; 
production adviser. Frederick A. 
Morecombe '43; electricians, John 
Caulfield '45. Willard Salter '46;

nevertheless one can hardly keep 
from wondering how things would 
have turned out had Bowdoin 
scored in those early minutes, and 
if "Hutch" had been in the forward 
wall to lend assistance in the last 
half -when the Jeffs were tearing 
off big chunks of yardage through 
the guard position, and if the line 
had been able to keep up the in- 
spired play which had stalled the 
Lord Jeffs' attack all through the 
first half. But, as it was, many of 
the boys gave a good account of 
themselves. Hunter frequently 
broke into the Amherst back-field 
making savage tackles and disrupt- 
ing their whole attack. Here also 
Minich. Moody, and Co-captain Alt- 
man did yoeman service in stop- 
ping the Amherst backs. In the 
back-field. Coach Walsh employed 
a defensive combination of Dona- 
hue and Beckler and an offensive 
combination of Johnstone and 
Pierce. These two units he alter- 
nated as Bowdoin changed from of- 
fensive to defensive play. Several 
times this maneuver paid off as 
Johnstone leaped high into the air 
and completed passes to one of bis 
team mates, while on the defense 
Donahue stopped one enemy thrust 
while on the very goal line by in- 
tercepting a pass and running it 
back out of danger. Throughout the 
game Captain Dolan was every bit 
a leader, doing his bit to stem the 
Jeffs' attack. It was his catch of 
Beckler's pass that opened Bow- 
doin's first offensive. At the end of 
the game it was disclosed that 
Bcwdoin's other co-captain, George 
Altman, had dislocated his should- 
er, an injury, however, whicr

mediately the J. V.'s started to 
click ^and picked up 24 yards on 
two plays before the period ended. 

Several plays later Jones, with 
fine blocking, circled his left end, 
broke down the sidelines, and was 
away on a touchdown jaunt. On 
the ensuing kickoff, Bridgton, 
fumbled and Bascom recovered 
for Bowdoin on the preppers' 26. 
Two plays later the frosh combi- 
nation of Brillant to Bascom 
clicked for 19 yards and a first 
down on the nine. After Pendle- 
ton bucked his way to the four, 
Bridgton rallied its defenses, held 
for downs, and proceeded to kick 
out of danger. 

The Polar Bears had another 
opportunity in the third period 
j when Lukens, an alert tackle, 
' nailed a fumble on the enemy 30. 
Try as they might, the cubs could 
not gain, and again Bridgton took 
over and kicked out of danger.

, Carven passed to Barassi, who 
steamed down the field behind a

By Ted Irish 

With two wins and one defeat 
behind them, the "Big White" 
will meet the Ephmen this Satur- 
day at Whittier Field. On paper, 
Williams is the favorite,- but Bow- 
doin, after being defeated by Am- 
herst, Saturday may be expected 
to put up a stiff fight. 

Williams thus far has had a 
spectacular season. Their 19-7 
win over Princeton two weeks ago 
was an upset surpassed only by 
the defeat of Minnesota by Bernie 
Bierman's Iowa Naval Cadets. 
Last Saturday the Ephmen anni- 
hilated a weak Clarkson team 
52-0. Williams made a total of 
eight touchdowns, while their own 
goal line was never threatened. 
The second team played the ma- 
jority of the game, not leaving the 
field until late in the third period, 
and scoring six of the eight touch- 
downs. Pat Higgins, Bill Schmidt, 
and Red Nichols were outstanding 
for the Ephmen, while Bob Wal- 
lace, veteran end shone on the de- 
fense. Williams scored twice in 
the fiirst period, once in the sec- 
ond, twice in the third, and three 
times in the fourth period. Three 
conversions were successful. The 
most spectacular play of the game 
was made by Bill Schmidt, who 
returned a punt 65 yards for a 
touchdown. Willliams' gains 
through the air were nil, but they 
ran wild around the ends. 

Bowdoin's encounter last Satur- 
day with Amherst was lost when 
the Purple capitalized on its 
breaks. Two interceptions by 
Rollie Smith, a blocked punt by 
Captain Bud Hasse, and the re- 
covery of a Bowdoin fumble by 
Vernon Williams set up four, of 
the Amherst touchdowns. Bow- 
doin threatened to score twice. 
In the first few minutes to play, 
the Big White marched to the 
Purple eleven, but lost the ball 
on downs; in the middle of the 
fourth period, they were on the 
march again, this time ploughing 
47 yards to the Purple seven. 
Again they tost the ball on downs. 

On paper, Williams is the 
toughest team that we will meet 
this year, from the standpoint of 
natural ability, but this game will 
lack the traditional rivalry seen 
in the State Series. The sting of 
the Amherst defeat last Saturday 
will serve as an incentive for the 
"Big White" to defeat the eleven 
from Williamstown. 

According to Adam Walsh, C4jr 
football coach, Williams is one of 
the best small college teams in the 
country. "In fact it is a big col- 
lege team in a small college." In 
defense of the Bowdoin team. 
Coach Walsh said that Williams 
has never been the victor on 
Whittier Field since he came to 
Bowdoin, and it is his intention 
to maintain this record next Sat- 











Mustard and 

By Jack Craven 

By way of speaking (a cloudy 
phrase, at best), a day in June is 
a pretty rare thing. In fact, if you 
want to string along with a few of 
the better known poets, you would 
find nothing so rare. But to the 
Bowdoin undergraduate mind, a 
June day can't hold a pure beeswax 
candle to that rarity of rarities, the 
simultaneous, clanging of the Searl- 
es bell and the Beckler bell. 

And even more rare" (into the 
realm of the impossible, as it were) 
is the simultaneous discordancy of 
these aforementioned timepieces 
combined with the far reaching 
tones of the Town Hall clock. 
Once last summer we qEught such 
a moment and believe us, we hold 
it dearly. Oh. joy, the thrill that 
went up and down our spine! 

Not that there is any criticism 
implied, not at all. After all what 
could one expect of such scientific, 
mechanical imperfections as the 
Searles Building and Town Hall 
clocks? Literally, it is the triumph 
of man over his own inventions, a 
notable achievement in the Twen- 
tieth Century. So, pine cones to 
you, William B. Yield not if the 
Searles clock is fifteen minutes off, 
either way. In other words, don't 
fall below the Bell standard set 
last year. 

But confidentially, Dear Reader 
(that's me), we not with concern 
the legend growing up around Wil- 
liam's able bell ringing. The Presi- 
dent lauds him in Chapel. The Nav- 
al Observatories all over the na- 
tion await his downward pull. 
WGAN in Portland has a relay 
from here, which quickly reaches 
the Man Who Rings Big Ben in 
London. Hitler and his colleagues, 
famous for their perfectly timed 
blitzkreigs, have a spy on campus. 
We could go on, but we dare not. 

Well, much as we dislike icono- 
clasts, disillusioners. revealers of 
The Facts, lifters of the Veil of 
Awe, accurate biographers and 
their ilk, who leave no room for 
haloes, now is the time to say what 
must be said. We've checked with 
reliable sources. In short, we are 
sure of ourselves. The secret is, 


Professor Fritz Koelln has an- 
nounced that this year's series of 
Tuesday evening Bible meetings 
will not consist of "lectures", as 
the school Calendar would indi- 
cate. In their stead, a series of 
"meditation evenings" will be con- 
ducted. This type of service, 
which was introduced by St. Paul's 
Episcopal Church, will consist of 
short readings from Matthew, 
following which those present will 
concentrate their thoughts and 
imaginations in an attempt to 
grasp the full, true significance 
of the reading. This new method, 
according to Professor Koelln, is 
believed to be very conducive to 
one's spiritual development. The 
meetings are held on Tuesday eve- 
nings from 7:15 till 8:00 o'clock, 
in the room in the Moulton Union 
formerly occupied by the Masque 
and Gown. 

The B. C. A. is also organizing 
its Farm Labor Program. This 
plan is being successfully used by 
colleges throughout the nation in 
an attempt to stem the acute 
shortage of labor facing farmers 
during the harvest season. 

Mr. Russell Speaks On 
Need Of Manual Labor 

Mr. Henry G. Russell, A.M.. In- 
structor in Biblical Literature, 
presided in Saturday Chapel. Be- 
fore reading the thirty-eighth 
Chapter from the Apocryphal book 
Ecclesiasticus, Mr. Russell em- 
phasized two points which the 
reading expressed. First, he laid 
importance on the fact that man- 
ual labor has both significance and 
dignity. Since college studies are 
almost entirely mental work, we 
can easily forget how necessary 
manual labor is. he said. 

In the second place Mr. Russell

thur Beckler, Jr. came here, he was

cide an all important baseball 
game. Instead of taking the easy 
way out and deciding in faybr of 
his team, the player did what he 
believed was honest and decided 
in favor of the opposing team. 
Professor Mitchell said that the 
ball player acted in this manner

made any other decision than that

VARIETY . . . . . 

By Crawford B. Thayer 

We only hope that the between-the-halves show at the 
Amherst grid encounter was the first of many. The brisk 
fight between the Bowdoin polar bear, aided and abetted by 
an armed assistant, and Lord Jeffrey Amherst was a good step 
toward livening up one of the dullest periods of a small col- 
lege football intermission. ... It was pointed out to us that 
the huge cigarette add mentioned by us last week was not a 
Chesterfield sign as we stated, but a Camel sign. Concede. . . 

Although some sweater scenes 
slipped by Mr. Will Hays in "Be- 
tween Us Girls," he caught up with 
"My Sister Eileen." The medium in 
the movie version was a prostitute 
in the stage show. The lines fit the 
latter situation much better in the 
latter situation, you see. Especially 
the calling card scene. . . . And 
remember, please, Jeff Donnell 
whom we told you to watch for a 
year ago. She will appear again 

soon shortly with a larger role 

We are pleased to find that the 
new Brunswick police chief is mak- 
ing active effort to establish har- 
monious relations with the col- 
lege. . . . 

For the first time we find that 
we have a whole day in the middle 
of the week with no classes sched- 
uled. . . . Have you noticed the 
new "35 Miles-War Speed" signs 
yet? There's one in Topsham. 
Which reminds us that we had bet- 
ter drop over to take in the fea- 
tures of the Topsham Fair. The 
Fair is practically a standard 
credit subject at Bowdoin. . . . 
We find that the fire towers of the 
forestry department are closed to 
visitors for the duration. . .. . 
There was a navy blimp hovering 
over the river the other day. It 
didn't quite get down to the cam- 
pus area. . . . Did you hear the 
first Fall "Bowdoin on the Air" 
program last night? Broadcasts 
will be given every other week, and 
not weekly as last year. . . . 

We were surprised to see so 
many students studying in the li- 
brary last Sunday afternoon. 
Those who dance must pay the fid- 
dler, we suppose. Incidentally the 
Polar Bears were certainly in the 
groove Saturday evening, and the 
swarm of girls who invaded the 
quiet sanctums of Bowdoin seemed 
to enjoy their music. . . . Why is 
the Amherst week end always such 
a big one on campus. . . . The last 

football rally wasn't half bad 

We read in the last Orient that "A 
few days ago Dr. Yang was walk- 
ing past the gymnasium and notic- 
ed the Bowdoin Polar Bear." 
Thank you, sir. ?*. . 

We learned the other day that 
Harriet Beecher Stowe used to 
work on her "Uncle Tom's Cabin" 
in Winthrop Hall when the chil- 
dren got too noisy at home on Fed-
